Hi everybody!
I just love to hear people talk with a Scottish accent and that's why I'm looking for movies and audiobooks in which this accent is prominent.

I very much enjoyed the accent of the main character in "Trainspotting" and I think Steven Macintosh did a brilliant job in using all sorts of accents for the audiobook of "The Beach". Among them was the Scottish accent of Mr Duck.
What other movies or audibooks are suitable to hear a Scootish accent rrrollin'?
Thanks in advance!

Hunt up Simpsons episodes featuring Groundskeepre Willie, he made the famous "cheese eating surrender monkey" quote.
ray o'hara had it:

Although he's not actually played by a Scottish actor.

Of the top of my head, try the TV series Hamish Macbeth and the movies Gregory's Girl and Whisky Galore.

"Gosford Park" is a good movie for this, as one may hear an authentic Scottish accent (rolling softly, if at all, in this variety) from a real maid alongside a phony Scottish accent from a Hollywood actor merely pretending to be a valet, och aye! They are as distinct as a convent girl's modesty and a Presbyterian sort. It is an exquisitely good movie as well.

'Local Hero' for that soft west-coast sound (although the village where it was filmed is in Fife, on the East Coast), plus you get Burt Lancaster thrown in. 'Shallow Grave' for the Edinburgh sound, though I didn't like the film, and 'Young Adam' which I thought was a brilliant, dark movie, for urban West Coast. It features Ewan McGregor, but it's arthouse rather than multiplex stuff. If you can find TV stuff, the adaptation of Iain Banks' 'The Crow Road' did the book justice, and features Peter Capaldi who's one of the finest Scottish actors to my mind.
Not Braveheart.
Has anybody (Rightpond) been watching the dire adaptation of 'Kidnapped' on Sundays? Why *** about with a really tight original plot? What a wasted opportunity...

Brought up in Glasgow I think, actor Sean
Connery does an excellent Scottish accent
in some films (listed on many web sites.
Trouble is, the person I know who speaks
most like Connery is a Lancashire man. . . .)

For one like that I'd suggest Shrek and Star Trek. (However, UK readers may note that Shrek seems to have developed a Dutch accent since he became manager of Tottenham Hotspur.)

Whatever you do don't think ANYONE talks like the
cast of "River city" there may well be some genuine scots actors in amongst the cast but I have not heard such bad accents since Van-'s cockney.
Mind you I thought the actress in "Touched by an angel" had a ridiculous Irish accent, untill I found out she was Irish, but then again she was an Irish actress playing in an American show where she had to put on what the leftpondians would think was an Irish accent.

Ah yes, I agree with the final two sentiments. I must seek out Young Adam.

Nope. Isn't it in the children's slot? I'm looking forward to Casanova though - David Tennant is an excellent actor - I was dead impressed with Blackpool.
