Skye is no stranger to Hollywood and has been used for many locations recently. Drawing on its stunning locations and atmospheric weather, it has featured on the opening of Prometheus and more recently has been the main filming location for Macbeth,  directed by Justin Kernel. The film stars Michael Fassbender as the titular fearless warrior and Marion Cotillard as the tortured Lady Macbeth.

What you won’t see on screen is just how hardy the actors were in getting the film made. Passing them several times at Sligachan in the rain.. in kilts.. you had to hand it to them for their perseverance. Hopefully the locals who were extras told them Skye wasn’t always quite so inhospitable.
