James Bond’s Glen Coe Heritage

It’s no accident that Bond’s family estate is located in Glen Coe. Nearby Dalness Lodge is owned by the family of Bond’s creator Ian Fleming and was used for the film Skyfall.

In the novel You Only Live Twice Fleming reveals that, as a boy, 007 attended Fettes College – a private school in Edinburgh – whilst the iconic setting for Bond’s family estate in Skyfall comes directly from On Her Majesty’s Secret Service (1969) – the film in which Bond reveals that his father is originally from Glencoe.

The Fleming family has had a long association with Skiing at Glencoe’s White Corries. The centre is on land originally leased from the family’s Blackmount estate, and Robin Fleming was company chairman until 2002.
