Whisky Galore!

See the Aberdeenshire coast on the big screen!

Whisky Galore! has hit UK & U.S. cinemas! We’re extra excited about its release because it was filmed in two of our naturally beautiful and unspoilt coastal villages, Portsoy and Pennan in Aberdeenshire.

Written by Scottish novelist Compton Mackenzie in 1947, Whisky Galore! has become a film favourite over the years and this new release brings back all the splendour of the classic novel. The film, based on true events, depicts the story of an 8,000 ton cargo ship, the ‘SS Politician’, ran aground off the island of Eriskay during gale force winds. At a time of war rationing, the beaching of this ship sends islanders wild, running rings to hide away cases of precious whisky.

The all-star cast includes Eddie Izzard, Naomi Battrick, George Fisher, Kevin Guthrie and James Cosmo.
