With its glacial glens, mysterious lochs and dramatic coastlines, bonnie Scotland has rightfully served as the ideal location for many of our favourite dramas, thrillers and cliffhangers. While James Bond and Harry Potter have introduced us to this historic land, it’s the magnificent moors, mountains, woodlands and waterfalls that have stolen the scenes.
