“There is nota stream or a rock thatdoesn’t have its own story”
Merida "The environment actuallyreminds me of her - this perfect but complicated blend of hard and soft." Brenda Chapman, Director
“You can’t escape the grandeur and beauty of Scotland. It’s so wild and rough. You don’t ﬁnd anywhere else on earth thathas mountains like that. All the lochs and the trenches are so rugged it evokes themysteries and legends that have come out of Scottish culture. The grey, cool mist mixes in with the russet mountains. The variation of landscape and ecosystems makes everything feel very touchable, everything has texture”.
“We went up the east coast and found our castle – Dunnottar Castle. We looked at standing stones and lochs and moss andheather and we lay down in it to get a real sense of what it was like.” Art Director
