When filming 'Whisky Galore', we scouted locations in Fife and decided to use the iconic St Monans as the right backdrop for scenes in the movie. FifeScreen was extremely helpful in making sure we were in touch with all the right contacts. It was a joy filming in Fife. The folks at the Council were flexible and patient with what we needed meaning we were able to turn filming around on a tight schedule. Am looking forward to going back.
