Falkirk has welcomed big budget Hollywood productions in recent years, with Cloud Atlas and World War Z filming at Birkhill Station in 2012 and the Rohm and Haas factory in 2013 respectively.

Birkhill was also used to film part of The Angels’ Share, while Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway was used in The Railway Man, starring Colin Firth and Nicola Kidman in 2013.

West Lothian featured in Trainspotting 2 (Beecraigs Country Park) and Under The Skin (Club Earth in Livingston), with Linlithgow Palace being used for both Outlaw King and Outlander.

Midhope Castle has also doubled up as Lallybroch Castle in the popular TV series.

Tourism Secretary Fiona Hyslop said: “Film and TV influences are a big draw for visitors coming to Scotland, and they can play a key role in ensuring the benefits of tourism are spread across Scotland.

“This guide will help encourage tourists to venture beyond our cities and visit places such as Falkirk and West Lothian where major productions are filmed.

I am pleased to see agencies such as Visit Falkirk and Visit West Lothian collaborating to draw visitors to Midhope Castle, perhaps better known as the famous Lallybroch in Outlander, and the surrounding area.
