Movie fans from around the world are flocking to Scotland to follow the footsteps of Robert the Bruce.
Tour operators are promoting tailor-made trips for fans of Netflix film Outlaw King.
The movie, starring American actor Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce, premiered on the streaming service in November and now, more than six months on, tourists are flocking from all over the world to see locations where filming took place, including Glasgow Cathedral, Craigmillar Castle, Edinburgh and Linlithgow Palace, West Lothian.
Several travel operators across the central belt have created packages for tourists who want to relive some of the iconic moments in the film which tells the story of the 14th-Century Scottish king.
Meanwhile, Scotland’s tourist board said it has had over 100,000 views of a Outlaw King locations map.
David Rankin, owner of Private Tours Edinburgh, began showing tourists Outlaw King filming locations late last year.
He explained that three-quarters of his customers come from America and the rest are from elsewhere in the world.
He said: “It is a very popular tour and there is a lot of interest especially because it is on Netflix.”
Katy Duncan, marketing manager for Highland Explorer Tours which launched an Outlaw King tour from Edinburgh last month, added: “It gets Scotland out there and gets people excited about coming to Scotland and experiencing it for themselves.”
Historic Environment Scotland said it expected the film to attract interest in its sites including Blackness Castle, Craigmillar Castle, Linlithgow Palace, Doune Castle, Dunfermline Abbey and Glasgow Cathedral.
Gillian MacDonald, head of business development and enterprise, said: “We have created a Robert the Bruce Trail.”
