Dalmeny - Film Location

Dalmeny House and Estate makes an impressive & attractive proposition as a quintessential Scottish film location. It is conveniently very close to Edinburgh.

Dalmeny has been used many times as a location for films and advertising. The house itself is an impressive and unspoiled example of Tudor Gothic architecture, while the estate offers a stunning and varied array of landscapes in close proximity, including:

  • unobstructed views of the Forth and its bridges
  • scenic reservoirs
  • mature woodland
  • rugged headlands
  • deserted beaches
  • an uninhabited island
  • cottages (ruined and complete)
  • walled gardens
  • farmhouses and farm outbuildings
  • a Scottish baronial towerhouse
  • isolated moorland valleys and hilltops...

Effectively, Dalmeny represents the best of Scotland in miniature.

Just Outside Edinburgh & Close to the Airport

Crucially, it does this with excellent transport connections. Dalmeny is only seven miles from the centre of Edinburgh, fifteen minutes from Edinburgh Airport and less than an hour's drive from Glasgow. It is within easy reach of camera and lighting equipment hire shops.

Cast and crew will appreciate the convenience Dalmeny offers.
