Film star beaches

A wrecked fishing boat on a North East Scottish beach appears in the poster for the Film The Life of Pi.

There was some suggestion that it might become a tourist attraction – like the telephone box at Pennan that appears in Local Hero.

It reminded me that one of our local beaches – Black Sands, Aberdour – is a film star.

It was a location in Sixteen years of Alcohol – directed by former Skids singer and Fifer Richard Jobson. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZacWzyw-izo

This got me thinking about what other Scottish beaches feature in films.

There are quite a few it seems – I found these other coastal locations on this website:

Local Hero – Camusdarach, Morar

Chariots of Fire – St Andrews

The Winter Guest – Elie

The Thirty Nine Steps (1959) – North Queensferry

Complicity – Inverkeithing

Kidnapped – Culross, Fife

The Little Vampire – Culross

Any other suggestions?
