With Scotland a big story right across the world just now, we thought we’d take a look at some of the stories told about Scotland. The referendum has inspired much reminiscing about Braveheart but there’s a wealth of other Scottish films out there that too often get overlooked. Our Scottish writers got together to pick out a top ten that we hope will remind you of some old favourites ad inspire you to sek out some exciting new talent.

Regrettably the excellent documentary We Are Northern Lights, in which hundreds of Scots provide their own takes on their country, didn’t quite make the grade, and neither did the enchanting Gaelic language fable Seachd: The Inaccessible Pinnacle. Some classics, like Gregory’s Girl and Whisky Galore, inevitably got left on the shelf, but not for want of. »
