Skye was one of three Scottish locations used by legendary film director Steven Spielberg for his movie of children’s book favourite The BFG.

Orkney and the Outer Hebrides made up the hat-trick of stunning backdrops for what promises to be a blockbuster when it hits the big screen next summer.

Scotland has long been a top choice for filmmakers and was voted the world’s Best Cinematic Destination in USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice awards earlier this year.

The country has a wealth of natural riches for creative movie makers and has been used as a set for recent hits: Skyfall, Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises and World War Z.
