Picture perfect backdrops

At number 84 on our 100 Ways list, we provide amazing locations for fashion photoshoots, showing off the beautiful places we protect and raising vital funds for their care.

Trust properties have welcomed many productions, from music videos, documentaries, travel programmes, adverts and photoshoots to international drama TV series and feature films.

Our unique range of locations – from Glencoe and St Abb’s Head to the historic burgh of Culross and stunning Culzean Castle – provide a huge variety of backdrops with great stories to match.

These beautiful places look absolutely amazing on film, so it’s no surprise that they’re so popular with picture editors and location managers. And the great news is that any revenue made through these projects goes right back to the places that we protect.
