Filming & photoshoots

​National Trust for Scotland locations have welcomed many productions, from music videos, documentaries, travel programmes, adverts and photo shoots to international drama TV series and feature films.

Our unique inventory of locations from Glencoe and St Abb’s Head to Culross and Culzean Castle provide a huge variety of backdrops with great stories to match. Hundreds of years of Scottish heritage is on view including dramatic mountains and historic houses, breath-taking coastlines, majestic forests and 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, and we have an extensive photo library that is frequently used for research and factual programming.

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.
