Dùn Ollaigh

Dùn Ollaigh

A week spent up in the beautiful Scottish Highlands filming a historical film about Dùn Ollaigh castle, up in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. 

We worked with a number of people like narrator, archeologists and historians as well as actors, doing pieces to camera, and also spent time filming the beautiful places around Oban to show the beauty of the area.

The film was commissioned by Dun Ollaigh castle for a variety of reasons: first, to be a kind of virtual tour for those unable to visit, and second to be a way for the castle to raise funds for future projects.

 The film follows the history of  Dùn Ollaigh, blending beautiful scenery shots with historical recreations, focusing in on the historical figures, events, and items that formed the castle and the area around it. 

The full film is out now (pay to watch).

This was a brilliant and beautiful project and I thoroughly enjoyed working with Director Mikey McManus.
