The Isle of Skye is set to make yet another film appearance in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

The upcoming movie was filmed in various locations around Scotland, including Shieldaig, Kishorn and Applecross in Wester Ross.  

Due for release in May, the film was directed by Guy Ritchie and will star Chris Hunnam.  

As well as King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Skye's familiar landscapes will be seen in Transformers: The Last Knight.  

VisitScotland has welcomed the expected exposure of Scotland to global cinema audiences.

Chief executive Malcolm Roughead said: "Skye has provided stunning backdrops to a host of high-profile movies in recent years, including The BFG, Macbeth and Prometheus.

"Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword is another opportunity to promote Scotland, not only as a wonderful set-jetting destination, but to highlight this country's connection to the man behind the myth."

He added: "It is particularly fitting in our Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology. From World Heritage Sites to ancient monuments, cultural traditions to our myths, stories and legends - the year-long programme will spotlight some of our greatest assets and icons as well as our hidden gems."
