Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway – Film Location
Amanda, our Business Development Director, was at Midhope Castle recently to celebrate the launch of a new campaign to showcase the area for visitors interested in film tourism. You may recognise this location as Lallybroch in Outlander which is a 20 minute drive from the railway, itself an Outlander location. Back in series 1, our very own Bo’ness Station was transformed to double as a wartime London railway station where two of the main characters, Claire and Frank, say their goodbyes.
Over the years, Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway has played a part in many films, including The Railway Man with Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth, Cloud Atlas, The Angels’ Share and many BBC TV programmes such as The Secret Agent and Agatha Christie’s Ordeal by Innocence. There’s a full list here.
With the help of VisitScotland, Film on Forth, a collaboration between Visit Falkirk and Visit West Lothian, will create a suite of digital itineraries, maps and videos highlighting the full range of filming locations across the area. Read more about it here.
“This hidden gem is only 40 minutes drive from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The staff are really friendly and looked after us as we boarded a beautiful steam train, we saw heritage diesels too. The sights, smells and sounds really took us back in time. After a browse around the excellent Museum of Scottish Railways and a bite to eat in the Station Buffet we all agreed we would recommend it to everyone and we would definitely be back.”
