Our Top 10 Most Scottish Films – Number 2


Whisky Galore screening in Dunbar

Whisky Galore

A simple but hilarious 1949 tale of islanders trying to hide 50,000 cases of whisky – plundered from the SS Cabinet Minister after it was hit by a ferocious storm – from the commander of the Home Guard, who is desperately trying to stop the looting.

The fact that this film is based on a real life shipwreck – the SS Politician, which came to grief on the rocks around Eriksay makes it all the better!

It is believed that there are only 8-10 bottles of the SS Politician‘s cargo left, two of which are on display in Canna House.
