Filming is finally getting underway in the Highlands today on the next installment of the blockbusting Harry Potter films. A heavy spell of rain cast a dampner on production of the film which was due to start yesterday.

The Hogwart School of Witchcraft and Wizardry has brought it's latest school outing to Glencoe to film the next big screen adventure of the pint sized wizard - Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Security is tight and film makers are doing everything possible to keep a cloak of secrecy around the production but with the Holywood style set of Hagrid's Hut backing onto a public highway onlookers have a birds eye view of the spooky goings on.

The outdoor production is already attracting bus loads of spellbound fans hoping for a sneeky peek at their favourite boy wizard.

The crew are due to be filming in the Highlands for at least a month but their schedule has already been rained off so before Harry can wave his wand at the evil Malfoy or Voldemort he will have to cast his spell on the Scottish weather first.
