'Skyfall' Scottish castle sequence rumoured to be shot in Wales

12-Dec-2011 • Skyfall

The Scotsman recounts the story behind James Bond 23 selecting Duntrune Castle, in Kilmartin, Argyll and Bute as a shooting location, and goes on to report that the "Skyfall" production team are now eyeing locales in neighbouring Wales.

According to Duntrune resident Robin Malcolm, “They were looking at other venues, and I think they’re going to fake it that the Welsh castle is going to be in Scotland."

“The last thing I heard was that they were going to have some shots of somewhere like Rannoch Moor that’s pretty desolate and a few mountains – which Wales can come up with too."

The location 007 director Sam Mendes is looking for is clearly a generic misty moor, rather than an ancestral home for James Bond, as some speculated.
