Robin Hardy’s 1973 film Wicker Man is my personal favourite; I’ve watched it an unhealthy number of times, loving the plot, the scenery, the music, the gratuitous nudity. If you’re not familiar with the film, simply watch it. Enough said.
Although the plot is set upon a fictional ‘Summerisle’, the filming was mostly done in and around the coast of the Machars Peninsula in Galloway, south west Scotland. It was a long overdue pleasure to spend a week based at Isle of Whithorn, the small town at the tip of the peninsula. It’s a short distance from St Ninians Cave and Burrow Head, where the shocking climax was filmed.
