This is a Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Braveheart, Trainspotting, Harry Potter, Skyfall and the Outlaw King are just a handful of films that use Scotland as their backdrop. And if you include the TV phenomenon that is Outlander, filming locations across the country have introduced Scotland to a global audience.

Grab yourself a drink, sit back and tuck into the popcorn as we head on a cinematic tour. This virtual tour is packed full of behind-the-scene insights and plenty of movie trivia that will delight any film buff. Jump on the Hogwarts Express as we steam across the Harry Potter bridge before grabbing some coconut shells to ride along with King Arthur to Doune Castle.

Discover some surprising James Bond movie locations. Stand on the platform at Britain’s remotest railway with Renton and the gang on their outdoor adventure away from the drug-ridden streets of Edinburgh. Finally, as the credits roll stop by a phone box made famous in a cult movie classic.

About Andrew Baxter

I am a professional guide, holding the prestigious Green Badge for the Scottish Highlands, awarded by the Scottish Tourist Guide Association. I’ve also completed virtual tour training approved by the British Guild of Tourist Guides. You can be confident that as your guide I am fully trained to deliver you an interactive and engaging virtual tour.

My mission is to make every tour educational, enjoyable and above all entertaining. Specialising in researching the unusual and unexpected details about any destination, I delight in weaving the traditional myths and legends of Scotland into my tours. Alongside this, I throw in a careful blend of contemporary culture and everyday Scottish life to demonstrate the real Scotland.

Forget boring online lectures with Powerpoint, these lively virtual tours leave you feeling like you’ve actually travelled through Scotland. Using video, images, Google Earth and Street View and live commentary, with plenty of storytelling, I show you hidden gems only known by locals and head off-the-beaten-path to discover the very best of Scotland.

Based in the stunning West Highlands, I am surrounded by lochs, mountains and midges! My spare time is spent tramping footpaths, clambering over castle ruins and bog hopping with my young family as we explore the Scottish Highlands together.

I am available for short notice bookings.
