Beyond The Known World: The Landscape Of The Eagle
Posted January 31, 2011 to photo album "Beyond The Known World: The Landscape Of The Eagle"
The Eagle showcases some of the most stunning landscapes to be found in Scotland. The following slideshow reveals where the areas actually exist.
Near Applecross in the Wester Ross area of the North West Highlands
This magnificent area in Northern Scotland may well look the same now as it did in the time of Esca and Marcus. Up until the 7th century, when Monk Maelrubha established a monastery in 673 AD, various tribes of Gaelic Picts controlled the area. The name Applecross is itself an Anglicization of A' Chomraich, a Gaelic term that loosely translates into sanctuary. Supervising location manager Duncan Muggoch remembers, “We had the most incredible weather on the day of shooting when we were they and you could see from the Isle of Skye on the west right across the whole of the Highlands to the East.”
