With 37% of the UK land mass, populated by a mere 8% of the UK’s population, Scotland has more space and more wilderness than practically any other European country.

Scotland boasts the highest mountains and deepest lochs in the UK as well as large and accessible tracts of forest and unspoilt moorland. We also have one of the longest coastlines in Europe, an incredible 6,000 miles of coast and rugged cliffs or pearl-white beaches, with 790 islands along the shoreline. Scotland also has the longest daylight hours in the UK with up to 18 hours of daylight in the midsummer, ensuring longer shooting days.

Scotland has a huge range of locations available, from prehistoric sites to contemporary cityscapes, castles and mansion houses, cottages and modern apartments. We work in partnership with a network of regional film offices across Scotland as well as a large number of national organisations, businesses and service providers across Scotland to ensure a trouble-free shoot wherever you choose.
