Scotland's For Scarlettt....

Seems that Scotland has really turned around the movie location issue with Batman 3, World War Z and last week's announcement of James Bond's SkyFall now being followed up by the news that Scarlett Johansson film Under the Skin heads north to Glencoe for filming this week.

According to BBC Scotland, scenes for a new film starring Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson are set to be shot at locations in the Highlands.

Under the Skin is based on a novel of the same name by Michel Faber, who lives in the Black Isle north of Inverness and is about an alien who picks up hitchhikers on the A9 road in the Highlands for spare body parts. Clearly based on real life then!

A Transport Scotland spokesman said that the A82 south of Loch Ba would be closed for 10 minute periods on Wednesday and Thursday, "Following discussions with the filming company Saltfilm, our operating company Scotland Transerv and the police, we have granted an order giving permission to carry out filming for the film Under the Skin on the A82.

"The Scottish government welcomes the continued interest in Scotland as a filming location and we are confident that any disruption to drivers will be minimal."
Well there we go enjoy beautiful Glencoe Scarlett - if you're inspired to go Celebrity spotting you can check latest availability in the West Highlands with Scotland's For Me - just enter your dates at the top right!
