Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park has inspired people for centuries – including celebrated authors such as Sir Walter Scott and Jules Verne. Today film crews follow in their tracks to either celebrate their work in film or develop new stories and TV dramas for the nation.
Covering vast and diverse landscape, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park includes 39 miles of coastline curling round three sea lochs, island-studded freshwater lochs, 22 lochs and over 50 rivers , vast forests and shaded woodlands, all just an hour away from over half of the population of Scotland and close to Edinburgh and Glasgow airports.
It’s our job to help care for this special part of Scotland – 720 square miles (1,863 square kilometres) of beautiful landscape. It is a special place and the revenue generated from filming is used towards restoration and conservation work, which is key to the future of the National Park.
The National Park Authority owns and manages piers, buildings, car parks and pathways which can be used for filming. You do not need our permission to film on land within the National Park that we don’t own.
Permissions and fees should be negotiated with the relevant landowners.
Fees vary depending on the type of production. Generally fees are charged for filming days plus any additional time for setting up and dismantling the set.
Fees are also charged for use of National Park staff and equipment during filming. We can also accompany you on location visits.
If you do film in Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, you will be required to supply the National Park Authority with a copy of your risk assessment document for our records.
