Warner Bros recently scrapped their £57m ‘Batgirl’ movie which was filmed in Glasgow, but there are many other great films to choose from that feature our bonnie land.
As a land full of culture and some of the world’s most breathtaking landscapes, it’s not surprising that many spots in Scotland have featured in well-known movies.
Scotland is a fabulous source of inspiration for scouts and film-makers around the globe, who seek to tell stories that immerse viewers in epic quests with unforgettable backdrops.
From tales of love and romance, to immense battles and historical literature, Scotland has played an important role in big screen productions.
Following news of ‘Batgirl’ (filmed in Glasgow) being cancelled, we’ve complied a list of 12 other popular films featuring bonnie Scotland.
