Old travel Blog photograph of people outside the shop in Auchmithie, location of the Scarlett Johansson film, Under the Skin in Angus, Scotland. A former Scottish fishing village located three miles north east of the town of Arbroath. The Arbroath Smokie, haddock hot smoked in a particular way, originated in Auchmithie. Sir Walter Scott stayed in the Waverley Hotel in Auchmithie and described Auchmithie in his novel The Antiquary written in 1816, under the name Musslecrag. Scarlett Johansson, best known for her roles in Lost in Translation and Iron Man 2, filmed scenes at the beach in Auchmithie for new sci-fi film Under the Skin. In the film, Miss Johansson plays an alien who travels around the Highlands of Scotland, seducing men for their body parts. It is based on a book by Scottish author Michel Faber. Blog post of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to travel and visit one day.
