Indiana Jones in Highlands: Pictures show motorbikes speeding down road for scene in new film

The Indiana Jones movie crew were spotted filming a high-speed motorbike chase through the Scottish Highlands.

The plot of the new ‘Indiana Jones 5’ has been kept tightly under wraps.

But these photos of stunt actors racing on motorbikes through the village of Glencoe, western Scotland, give a first insight into the secret plot of the new film.

Two stunt workers can be seen racing each other on motorbikes which appear to be from the World War Two era, behind a vehicle with a large camera rig.

A third, unidentified rider, can then be seen joining the two, riding what looks like a Harley Davidson motorbike, appearing to give the actors directions.

The exhilarating scene was being filmed on June 5 with the stunning backdrop of the Buachaille Etive Mor mountain in shot behind the speeding bikes.

There were no sightings of star of the franchise Harrison Ford, who has been seen in several locations across the UK in his classic Indiana Jones attire.

Tony Featherstone, 40, was returning home from a wild camping trip and had pulled into a layby for breakfast when he spotted the high speed chase.

Sales specialist Tony, from Newcastle, said: “I was enjoying breakfast whilst looking up at the beautiful Buachaille Etive Mor when I noticed the road was being closed on either side periodically to stop traffic.

“Each time the traffic was stopped, two motorbikes would travel down the road alongside a vehicle with a large camera rig attached to it.

“They’d stop at carparks on each side before getting off the bikes and interacting with the crew.

“At times, there was someone on a third bike – a Harley Davidson, I think – but this guy just seemed to be giving directions to the two actors.

“The scene involved two people – a man and a woman – and the focus of this seemed to be to capture them racing alongside the Buachaille Etive Mor mountian.

“As well as the camera vehicle, there was also a drone capturing aerial footage at times too.

“We were right in the middle of the shoot. No one else was being allowed through during filming but because we were already there, we couldn’t move, so we stayed and took photos for around 40 minutes.”

Crews have been spotted filming at several other locations over recent weeks, including in the Scottish Borders and at Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland.

North and north-east as a backdrop

The Indiana Jones crew aren’t the first to decide that the picturesque scenery of the north and north-east of Scotland should feature in their film.

Scenes from the 25th installment of the James Bond franchise were shot back in 2019.

A “container” hotel was constructed in Aviemore to accommodate a production crew of around 300.

And fans of hit television series Peaky Blinders were urged to keep away from a filming location in the north-east.

The team behind the BBC’s hit gangster show filmed part of its sixth series at Portsoy harbour in January.

And just a month later, film fans in Aberdeen gathered to watch as Hollywood star Taron Egerton shot scenes for the movie Tetris.
