Head east to Dunnottar Castle, said to be the inspiration for the DunBroch family home in Disney•Pixar's Brave.
Alternatively, go north through Huntly and Banff to another Scottish film icon. Clustered below the cliffs and with Scotland’s most famous phonebox, Pennan was one half of the fictional village of Ferness in Local Hero.
From Pennan, head westwards along the A98 towards Inverness and to the top of the Great Glen and Loch Ness, the setting of the film The Water Horse – Legend of the Deep, an enchanting story about its most mysterious inhabitant, the Loch Ness Monster. Ardkinglas House in Argyll was used as the main exterior location in the film.
