One of Us Film Locations

Sheep Heid

All scenes were shot in Edinburgh and the Scottish Borders, with the production company basing itself in the city throughout filming. Locations in Edinburgh include Waverley Court, Rodney Street Tunnel, Tolbooth Tavern, The Sheep Heid Inn and Royal Mile Tavern.

Waverley Court is the headquarters of the City of Edinburgh Council. The entrance to Waverley Court is heralded by Everyman by artist Stephen Blakehol.

Rodney Street Tunnel formed part of the Edinburgh to Newhaven railway line and after renovation became part of the national cycle network.

Tolbooth Tavern is part of the original Canongate Tolbooth which was built in 1591. The Canongate Tolbooth was the centre of administration for the then-separate burgh of Canongate, where trade tolls were paid. The tolbooth also served as a courthouse and prison.

The Sheep Heid Inn (pictured above) is Scotland’s oldest surviving pub dating from 1360. It retains its traditional look, and a traditional wooden skittle alley.

Royal Mile Tavern is a traditional oak-lined tavern in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, now hosting live music every night. See the location of this pub and more in the map below.

The Royal Burgh of Peebles steps in as the Scottish Highlands in this thrilling piece, playing the fictional town of Braeston and the surrounding farmland.
