The 'Skyfall' team headed north of the border for
a day's filming in Glencoe, Scotland with Craig and
9th February 2012
Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench were north
of the border in Glencoe, Scotland, today for a "Skyfall" location
shoot with the stunning 3,353ft mountain Buachaille Etive Mor
backdrop. The filming took place about an hour's walk from the
A82 in near freezing conditions, on a trail which was closed
to the public for the day.
Crew had been on location for a couple of days
setting up beforehand, but Craig and Dench were only in Scotland
for the day, along with 007's vintage Aston Martin DB5. Ben Collins
(AKA The Stig) was also on location for driving duty, steering
the DB5 towards an old estate. Both Craig and Dench were spotted
at Glasgow airport in the evening, heading back to London.
In the original novels by Ian Fleming, James
Bond's father had hailed from Glencoe. The author was also known
to love the area.
As confirmed by
the official 007 Twitter feed, one of the scenes captured
today - #137 - takes place shortly
after the Trinity
Square (Whitehall) action that was filmed
recently, and immediately after the industrial
estate action with the DB5 captured before Christmas.
