The film shoot for new James Bond movie Skyfall was supposed to start, in February, at Duntrune Castle near Lochgilphead in Argyll. However, it is now going to take place in Wales.
Robin Malcolm, owner of Duntrune Castle, thinks Scotland will lose out with the change. The idea was to bring Bond back to his Scottish roots but Director Sam Mendes changed his mind and is said to be looking at desolate locations with a few mountains that can be found in Wales as well.
The interest towards Duntrune Castle as a filming location has increased even with Skyfall being filmed in Wales. This Castle was at some point the place chosen for the new James Bond movie.
