Filming at NTS properties

Trust properties have been the stars of many productions – from documentaries to Hollywood blockbusters.

Our unique inventory of properties provide a huge variety of backdrops with great stories to match. Hundreds of years of Scottish heritage is on view – from dramatic mountains to historic houses; breathtaking coastlines to imposing castles. The Trust portfolio also includes significant sites in Scottish history, such as Bannockburn and Culloden battlefields and the birthplaces of Robert Burns and J.M. Barrie.

Our experts can offer advice in many areas of Scottish heritage, including history, archaeology, wildlife and collections.

The Trust's dedicated Filming Manager will help you find the perfect location and provides a single point of contact from your initial enquiry to the shoot.
