A NUMBER of romantic comedies filmed in Scotland will be available to stream on Netflix soon – and it’s hoped they’ll provide a tourism boost for some of the country’s beautiful locations.

A Castle for Christmas, Falling for Figaro and The Princess Switch 3 were all filmed across Argyll, Glasgow, the Highlands and Lothians prior to and during the pandemic.

The Princess Switch 3: Romancing the Star, featuring Vanessa Hudgens, was filmed at Hopetoun House and Newbattle Abbey College. The series had already filmed in Scotland for the second instalment, titled Switched Again.

The organisation’s film and creative industries manager, Jenni Steele, is hoping these latest films will help further boost tourism.

She said: “Scotland is full of places for a romantic winter escape, and this festive season film fans will have the chance to enjoy some on-screen romantic escapes with the release of a host of feel-good movies shot in Scotland.

“We know films and television shows influence visitors in choosing their destination and so the more on-screen appearances there are of our stunning landscapes and heritage, the more opportunities they offer for inspiration,” Steele added.
