Perthshire in the Movies
With its magnificent scenery, historic castles and homes, Perthshire has been the site of many home movies, to show it off to the folks back home and show them what they are missing. This beauty also makes it onto the big screen too, with many movies and TV shows utilising Perthshire. Here is our top five.
The time travelling epic has plenty of Perthshire locations to explore. Dunkeld House Hotel grounds was used as the wilderness of North Carolina, Tibbermore Parish church was the setting for a witch trial, while Drummond Castle Gardens stood in as the gardens of Versailles.
Starring Liam Neeson, the Rob Roy blockbuster us several Perthshire locations, including
Megginch Castle, outside Errol and Perth Sheriff Court.
Fans of Horror might remember getting the chills watching The Descent. Although it was set in America, it was actually filmed around Pitlochry and Dunkeld. The Linn of Tummel and Hermitage waterfalls are spectacular places to visit which feature.
The Railway Man
This World War Two film starred Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth, yet it's big star was of course (obviously!) Perth railway station where it was filmed.
Remember the scene where Renton, Spud and Co are at a train station, literally in the middle of nowhere? Well, that's Corrour Station, high on Rannoch moor. One of the most spectacular places you will ever step of a train at.
