Scotland is the real star of T2 Trainspotting
Share This Article:
Ewan McGregor famously said, “Choose Life…” at the beginning of 1996's Trainspotting. If a first viewing of T2 Trainspotting is anything to go by, film fans should choose Scotland for their next film location experience. Danny Boyle's follow-up to the quintessential 90s film Trainspotting catches up with Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie 20 years after the first film, for a nostalgic look at their original shenanigans. Although the first was filmed largely in Glasgow (doubling for Edinburgh in many scenes), Edinburgh features prominently in many key scenes in the new film. Visitors to Scotland can walk in the footsteps of their movie antiheroes, through many of the film’s capital locations. WARNING: Minor spoilers ahead! Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park, Edinburgh Renton (Ewan McGregor) and Spud (Ewen Bremner) go running up Arthur's Seat in the early summer sunshine; Edinburgh's cityscape can be seen in all its sun kissed glory. Old Town locations like Victoria Street and the Grassmarket Renton is chased through Edinburgh's Old Town, running past locations including the Grassmarket, Victoria Street and Fleshmarket Close.
