Reporting of Filming in Scotland
This is North Scotland is reporting that filming crews have come in to start shooting some scenes for the fifth Harry Potter film.
The sets are to be happening in Glenfinnan and Glen Etive.
The first of the action saw a Harry Potter double on location at Glenfinnan, in front of Bonnie Prince Charlie's Monument, skimming flat stones across Loch Shiel. Film crews in boats recorded the action, as excited tourists visiting the monument looked on eagerly. Local man Donald MacLean who was watching from the loch shore, said: "Once Harry's double got the hang of it he was able to send the stones quite a long way."
Meanwhile, in Glencoe this week, computer-aided filming from a helicopter has brought a new dimension to Hagrid's (Robbie Coltrane's) Hut in Clachaig Gully . Earlier, the movie makers succeeded in getting snow scenes at Glen Etive.
