You've seen a film; now is your chance to visit the film location in Scotland... and after you've seen it, trust me, you'll watch it again and say, "I was there!"

Often Scotland is used to stand in for other countries: Glasgow's George Square doubled as Philadelphia in Brad Pitt's zombie film "World War Z." Only weeks later Halley Berry was in town with Glasgow standing in for San Francisco for "Cloud Atlas."

Despite the film "The Descent," being set in the Appalachian Mountains much of it was filmed in Scotland. Glasgow was used for location filming "Fast & Furious 6."

Black Kilt Tours was the official driver/ guide for the "Discover Scotland: the land that inspired Outlander media tour" on behalf of VisitScotland.
