Are you a massive 007 fan and always in awe of the amazing locations that Bond is always jetting off to? Well if you’re on a trip to the Highlands don’t miss this James Bond Skyfall Location in Scotland!!
It’s incredibly scenic, just off a major tourist route and yet barely anyone goes here as its a dead end road!
James Bond Skyfall Location in Scotland
The location is called Glen Etive and the turn off is just a few kilometers after the Glencoe Mountain Resort heading towards Fort Williams. You will cross a bridge and it’s just on your left. If you have GPS available (just chuck into google maps) the exact co-ordinates are 56°37′10.31″N 04°55′51.23″W however the vista is almost unmissable and there is only one bridge along the road. There is also a modified road sign to mark the spot.
We visited in summer and freedom camped [read more here about Freedom camping in Scotland] which was an amazing experience however be aware of two things. One, in summer it’s completely green and doesn’t quite look like the film. Two, there are midges everywhere. It’s horrible and incredible at the same time. If you get the chance better to visit in winter as it is all accessible from the car.
Don’t forget to drive the entire road as the vistas change at everything before you eventual reach a dead end at the sea. Be slow and steady on the roads and you will soon be wondering how the hell 007 got an Aston Martin down here! Sadly the SkyFall mansion doesn’t not exist and was created as a film set in Surrey, England on Department of Defence land but if you continue along the road you might notice that one house bares a striking resemblance to the film!! It’s private property however so be sure to keep out.
To find the road in look for the signs to Glen Etive, it’s just after the Glencoe Ski area heading into Glencoe. Go over the next bridge and its just after the sign on your left!
So now you all know about the James Bond SkyFall Location in Scotland! Make sure you don’t miss it on your next trip to the incredible highlands!
