We enjoyed meeting the lovely Gerard Butler today at Portpatrick GC. Gerard was extremely charming (although a little nervous about hit first tee shot) and delighted us by posing for a photo on the first tee. PS. We love him……….Even with a wooly beard!
Scottish born Gerard has been filming in the area recently, including Port Logan and the Mull of Galloway. About the film – Keepers
It is one of Scotland’s enduring mysteries, a haunting incident at a remote lighthouse twenty miles west of Lewis that has inspired poets, composers and even rock bands.
Now the mystery of the disappearance of three lighthouse keepers from the Flannan Isles Lighthouse, on Eilean Mor, is to reach the big screen, with a star cast featuring Hollywood actors Gerard Butler and Peter Mullan, and up and coming young talent Joe Alwyn.
The movie casts a dramaitc new spin on the 1900 mystery, when keepers Thomas Marshall, James Ducat and Donald MacArthur vanished from the lighthouse in parlous weather.
