Scotland, Bond’s Scotland

Along with celebrating the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the longest running series of films and being the most successful of the James Bond series, SkyFall is now being credited with making Scotland one of the top tourist destinations for 2013.

According to CNN Travel, the scenes showing Bond driving through the ruggedly beautiful Scottish countryside has piqued interest so much that Scotland has topped such exotic destinations as the capital of Morocco and Slovakia as well as sub-Saharan Africa which finished 2nd, 3rd and 4th respectively.  Rounding out the top 5 was Gettysburg (which is also benefiting from the cinematic boost provided by Spielberg’s Lincoln.)

For any interested in visiting Scotland, Sceptre Tours offers escorted packages to Scotland and will be introducing independent packages to Scotland as well.
