Auld Reekie in The Illusionist

A Tour of Movie Edinburgh in almost 300 Stills from 54 films

Over 100 stills added

Someone pointed me in the direction of a website with a list of British film locations. However the paucity of the Edinburgh locations named was very disappointing. There was a request on the forum for Auld Reekie films and I thought I’d put together a wee collection with screenshots.

I have included a couple of recreated landmarks amongst the real locations. Holyrood Castle and a CGI’ed Scott Monument for instance.

Putting together a collection of this type is a bit like Trainspotting, and I’ve got plenty of numbers still to find.
