Famous Film Locations near Rannoch Moor
The epic, sprawling wilderness of Rannoch Moor is famous for many things; for its vast array of native Scottish wildlife, flora and fauna, for the homely, inviting atmosphere of its tearooms, and of course for the picturesque Rannoch Train Station, where for many visitors, their holiday in Scotland begins.
But did you know that the area is just as renowned for its role in some of the biggest movies to ever hit the big screen?
The famous moment in Trainspotting, where Ewan McGregor and his pals head out into the countryside for some fresh air, was filmed here, as were several scenes in the timeless 1975 hit historical comedy, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
Not too surprisingly given the Scottish folk hero’s connection with Loch Rannoch, the Moor was also used for scenes in the 1995 biopic Rob Roy, starring Liam Neeson as the legendary outlaw, and Jessica Lange as his wife, Mary.
A magical part of your child-friendly family holiday in Scotland
If you are bringing young ones along on your visit to Rannoch Moor, be sure to treat them to an authentic Jacobite Steam Train from Rannoch Station to Fort William.
For kids and big kids alike, the route provides a once-in-a-lifetime chance to follow the trail of Harry Potter and his friends on the Hogwarts Express, as scenes from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets were shot along this route.
