Fife and Tayside Scotland - a quick guide


Map: Angus, Dundee City, Fife, Perth & Kinross - Scotland 


Where in Scotland

The region goes from the Forth Bridges to the highlands and from central Scotland to the east coast.  As a broad idea there are film locations from highland to coastal, rural to urban, cities, towns, villages, castles, mansions, rivers, rapids, mountains, cliffs, beaches and of course, golf. 

Fife lies between the River Forth and the River Tay.  Some major towns and cities from West to East are Perth, Dunfermline and Dundee out to St. Andrews in the East Neuk of Fife and Montrose on the Angus coast.

The region as a whole is 15 miles north of Edinburgh, 70 miles east of Glasgow and 50 miles south-west of Aberdeen.




There's a wide variety from luxury and world famous to comfort on a budget - some of the famous names are the Apex Hotel, Dundee, the Carnoustie Golf Hotel, Gleneagles in Perthshire and the Old Course and Fairmont Hotels, St Andrews.

We're in contact with regional hotels who know what it takes to be 'film crew friendly' - so whatever your budget or requirements, let us know and we'll put you in touch.
