It was reported in the weekend papers that David Beckham is filming a whisky advert in Scotland and various grainy images of him in a green velvet smoking jacket at a lodge in the Highlands were on display. This came as no surprise to Scotts Castle Holidays as a few months ago we were involved in assisting with the search for the suitable location.

Eventually a Victorian shooting lodge overlooking Loch Affric was chosen and the filming has now taken place.

IMG_2707It is certainly a stunning location and one that involves at least a four or five hour journey from Edinburgh airport. Whilst this film company have made the effort to travel with their star and whisky product, it is amazing how many requests we get for stunning Highland locations one hour away from these major airports. Scotland is a small country, but the hills and glens that are seen around the world in these adverts are normally three or four hours away from Edinburgh and Glasgow. For those that are prepared to travel will be rewarded.

HI022-1Exterior06Scotts Castle Holidays have so many grand houses, magnificent mansions, shooting lodges, castles and large holiday houses to choose from. All come with a summary of where they are located. This Luxury Highland Lodge is only 2 hours from Edinburgh airport, situated in the highlands of Scotland and is a granite clad lodge which sits proudly above Loch Ericht. The views are stunning and the lodge is one of the most popular venues available for 8 people on a self-catering basis. If David Beckham ever wants some peace and quiet to actually enjoy a dram on a family holiday, this would be perfect. Contact Scotts Castle Holidays today for more details.
