Scenes from the upcoming Star Wars film could be shot in Argyll, with the Rest and Be Thankful selected as a possible filming location.

Production of the movie, which is set to be a first in a new trilogy, is scheduled to start in June.

A source told the Sunday Mail: ‘As is now customary with any Star Wars production, the movie is shrouded in secrecy but they want to shoot scenes around the Rest and Be Thankful. Further filming has been pencilled in for elsewhere in the country.’
