Film buffs have been given the chance to grab their own slice of cinema history after a home that starred in the hit remake of Whisky Galore was put up for sale.
The Old Merchant House on Shorehead in the Banffshire village of Portsoy is being advertised for offers over £275,000.
The A-list Georgian property, which dates back to 1726, featured prominently in the remake of the classic comedy film which starred Eddie Izzard, Gregor Fisher and James Cosmo.
It comes just a week after another part of the film set, a stretch of New Aberdour Beach, was put on the market for offers over £90,000.
The latest movie adaptation of Compton McKenzie’s novel tells the true story of how the US-bound SS Politician floundered on rocks of the Hebridean island of Eriskay in 1941.
Whisky-loving islanders famously gather up some of the 28,000 cases of whisky which had been on board and hide it from customs officials.
Estate agent McEwan Fraser Legal said there had already been a “flurry of interest” in the building.
Ken McEwan, chief executive of the Edinburgh-based firm, said: “There’s a committed community of Whisky Galore fans and nothing much that’s connect with the film happens without them knowing about it.
“There have been a few calls about the property which, because of its central location in Portsoy, features quite heavily in the remake.
“Apart from its role as a movie star, it’s a stunning property and we don’t imagine it will be long before it’s snapped up.”
The four-storey home has three bedrooms, a dining room, a laundry room and a lounge with an original 18th century fireplace. It has been used as holiday accommodation by the current owners.
The area around Portsoy has proven popular with film makers – scenes from cult hit Local Hero were filmed along the nearby coastline and the area around the village also feature in the 2015 film version of Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s Scots novel Sunset Song.
