Walk in the Footsteps of Filmstars - new for 2010
Follow in the footsteps of filmstars and discover the panoramic views that you will have discovered and recognise from big screen film. Even on a first trip to Skye and Lochalsh many feel they’ve been here before, and most have! Through big screen epics you will have encountered panoramic scenes from Skye and Lochalsh, and recognize them as familiar. The recently launched ‘Blessed’ stars James Nesbitt in the role he describes as “….. the script, the film, the role that I’ve waited my whole professional life to play.” Filmed in the way that all lovers of this Unforgettable island will know it, its poignant inspiration will call many more to discover its magic. It was on Skye that Christopher Lambert (Connor Macleod) challenged deadly forces in the epic 'Highlander', and where Michelle Pfeiffer plotted wickedly in 'Stardust' with its awesome special effects. 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban’s' location for Hogwarts Lake, is in Glenshiel; 'Monty Python’s Holy Grail' filmed on location on Skye, the list is endless! These film heroes met challenges in our mountains and left footprints on our shores. Stand where they stood and feel the power and drama of the locations that were used to make these films legends. Rent them, buy them, bring them on holiday and see if you can spot where the filmstars stood! It’s a great incentive for a reluctant teenage walker, and could just add that unusual twist to your holiday plans!
