Argyll, Scotland. The mountains above this Scottish village, located at the head of Loch Goil, were used for the scene in the 1963 James Bond film From Russia with Love in which Bond, played by Sean Connery, eliminated two villains in a helicopter by firing gunshots at them. A few miles north of Lochgoilhead, is a junction which on the left goes through Hell's Glen, Loch Fyne, Dunoon, Inverary, Lochawe, Oban, Tyndrum, Glencoe and Fort William. On the right it goes to Glen Croe, Loch Long, Arrochar and Tarbet, Loch Lomond, Glasgow and Crianlarich with the options of travelling to either Inverary and Lochawe, Oban and Fort William, Lochearnhead and Killin.
