Braveheart

Braveheart is another well-known film which features Glen Nevis as a location.  A notable landmark is the old Cameron graveyard in the glen where the funeral scenes were filmed, and the movie opens with horsemen riding through the area of The Soldiers’ Pool.  Many scenes were filmed along the River Nevis including the barn where the nobles were slain. Most of the battle scenes were filmed in Ireland as even Mel Gibson couldn’t fight off the English soldiers and the Scottish midges at the same time!   The Braveheart carpark was constructed to accommodate the mountains of equipment required for film making.
