    Neil Oliver's History of Scotland series is very good. It is a documentary, so maybe not what you are looking for but a good watch nonetheless.

    revdpatience mentioned Gregorys Girl. That is one funny show.

    seducing people's sisters?
    Act your age.
    Go and break some windows...
    demolish some phone boxes.

    How about the animation film "Brave". I see a blend of different cultures but like the tartan and clan identification. I'm also a sucker for a red-headed girl.

    I was in Portsoy when they were filming the remake, so I have a soft spot for that version as well. Not bad, but see the original first. For the remake, the harbour area had been made to look more vintage and there were lovely old boats everywhere.

    My addition is the Shetland BBC series. Very well acted and well-written, based on books by Ann Cleeves.

    I also liked the movie Angel's Share, by Ken Loach.

    My home village of Culross was used in quite a few shows/movies including Outlander, Captain America, The Little Vampire, Kidnapped, and the 39 Steps.

    The illusionist is a great animation set mainly in 1950's Edinburgh.

    I was sitting here thinking and from my youth there was Greyfriars Bobby by Disney and I believe Kidnapped had a scot as it's hero.

    I was going to add Tunes of Glory, but you got there first. What a magnificent film!

    The book upon which it is based is awfully good, too.
