Last month a Warner Bros. representative reviewedopens in new window areas in Scotland for filming locations for the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which is set to start filming later this year. The locations featured caves and cliffs which may suit key scenes in the movie.

The main locations that were checked out were:

  • Smoo Cave, near Durness, which is 200ft long, 130ft wide, and 50ft tall at its entrance
  • Clo Mor, near Cape Wrath, which at 921ft, are the highest cliffs on the UK mainland
  • The arches under Cape Wrath, which contain a string of long caves
  • Stac Clo Kearvaig, a tower of rock that rises 130ft above the waves near Cape Wrath
  • The cave at the Whaligoe Steps, which lies in a bay enclosed by two large sea cliffs

You may remember that in February we had a report that Warner Bros. had also scouted out areasopens in new window in Ireland for possible filming. We will all find out later this year which area won out.
