Filming on Atholl Estates

Atholl Estates has 145,000 acres of land which covers a vast array of scenery from steep mountainous scenes to rolling heather covered vistas, intense forestry to lowland grazing pastures. We also have many dramatic rivers and serene lochs to choose from and an array of ancient buildings and bridges that can lend themselves to most filming purposes. We are very lucky as most of the land is easily accessible to film crews and bases can be set up close by with very little interruption from everyday life.

 

Testimonial from Location Manager Naomi Liston for ITV’s Victoria Season 2 Episode 7 filmed June 2017.

“I can not express enough what a positive, enjoyable and above all successful experience the production had during our filming period.  The Estate team made my job as effortless as possible and reacted to every schedule change and additional request always with a YES.  Our locations with in the estate spread far and wide due to its sheer size which gave us huge flexibility and endless, very accessible, varied epic vistas, some of which had no hint of in habitation or a pylon in sight for as far as the eye could see to the Cairngorms and Shihalian in the far distance. I really can not rate this location highly enough and I know that if I had something like this on my door step in NI for other projects we wouldn’t need anywhere else!  The forests are Jurassic and natural all with great accessible forest tracks, parkland to die for, River Gary, Tilt and Tummel are again accessible remote wilderness. The castle is fantastic and with management easy to shoot whilst keeping the flow of public happy. I cant wait to return to the estate again soon.”

Testimonial from Nadine Lee BBC Scotland – ‘Scotland From the Sky’ and ‘The Battle for Scotland’s Countryside’

“In 2017 we filmed twice on the Atholl Estate, and both times Julia and the team were extremely accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. I was especially appreciative of the speediness and ease of dealing with the team, even when we had to change our carefully laid plans. The estate itself is beautiful, and is easily accessible for film crews with accommodation located close by. Thanks again for a wonderful filming experience!”
