Watery film locations go online

In recent years, Scotland’s lochs, rivers and canals have been popular sets for numerous television and box office movie moments. Now, British Waterways has mapped out the most iconic film and TV locations on Britain’s 2,200-mile network of canals, and is inviting the public to discover these real-life film sets.

The map – which can be viewed at – features big budget favourites like Loch Ness, in which Nessie was discovered by Mr Cheers himself, Ted Danson, as well as popular TV shows like Taggart. The map also includes other film locations in England and Wales like big budget Hollywood favourites 28 Weeks Later and The World is Not Enough, which were filmed around London’s Docklands.
