Scotland on Film

A range of films regarding Scotland, casts a wide net to include those shot or set in Scotland and those with Scottish content. This includes the likes of the haunting comedies of Will Hay, Arthur Askey and Old Mother Riley set in Scottish castles but with not a frame set in Scotland and Nine Men, which is set abroad but has plenty of dialogue relating to Scotland.

It is based around the work of Janet McBain's Filmography in "From limelight to satellite : a Scottish film book", though it is updated and includes films not in that filmography like The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots; The Green Years and Journey To The Center Of The Earth.
