A movie-mad couple have travelled thousands of miles from their home in Canada to enjoy a whirlwind “set-jetting” tour of Scotland.

Jan Wong and Angela Lam, from Toronto, took in various film locations including Rosslyn Chapel, made famous by Ron Howard’s big-screen version of The Da Vinci Code.

They also visited Glen Coe, which appeared in last year’s James Bond blockbuster Skyfall; Stirling Castle, which can be seen in Kidnapped (1971); and Edinburgh Academy, which featured in the 1969 classic The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.

“We’ve always been fans of the movies and have been influenced to go to places as a result of seeing them on screen,” said Jan, a 42-year-old accountant.

Wife Angela, a nurse, also 42, added: “This is our first visit to Scotland, but it certainly won’t be our last.”
