Sets built for the movie on Llanddywn Island, Anglesey were almost destroyed after the first week of filming was plagued by gale force winds and rain in September 2004. Not much luck at other locations where the bad weather followed at Llanbadrig, Anglesey and Porth Dinllaen. See more »
When Rachel first enters the town of Ingonish she walks past a sign stating the population. Scottish towns don't have these. See more »
Why is it everyone paints their boats the exact same color as their houses?
Well, that's actually a tradition here. The wife needs to be able to look out on the water and know her husband's okay.
That's very romantic.
And we also get a tax-break on the paint, which is also very romantic.

Distraught author seeks solace over son's death on remote Scottish seacoast. Things are not as they seem!
I enjoyed this movie a lot since I love horror/mystery/thriller/ghost stories. However, I would put this in the category of ghost story/love story. I think Demi was Demi - not great, but good. I thought it was interesting that they have her coupled with someone almost 20 years younger than she is, just like her real life. I do question some of the scenery. The village looks authentic Scottish with plaster and stone houses. However, the cottage, looks pure Appalacian mountain cabin - certainly not able to withstand hard weather in that part of the British Isles. Also, the lighthouse looks more USA than Scotland. The rest of the scenery looked genuine. I loved the musical score and the GREAT twist at the end. It really leaves you wondering about some things, and that's why I watched it again the next day. I do recommend this movie! I wish it had been based on a novel so I could clear up some questions I still have.
