A Stunning Backdrop
With growing demand for beautiful locations for film and TV shoots in East Lothian, Gilmerton House has had its fair share of film companies and magazines taking advantage of the stunning backdrops.
On the film front, Gilmerton House has featured in the Railway Man, a touching tribute to the war veteran Eric Lomax starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
The historical drama, Tommy’s Honour, about the world’s first golfing superstars and founders of modern golf, Old and Young Tom Morris, was also filmed here. Gilmerton was chosen because of Tom Morris’s golfing friendship with one of Sir David Kinloch’s golf-mad ancestors!
Because of its distinctive look, Gilmerton House has also been used for photo and fashion shoots, including one for Burberry.
We’d love to show you round Gilmerton if you’re planning a film shoot or photo shoot.
