I hope to populate this site with contributions from many sources and to create an archive of IKWIG information preventing clips-photos-posters-stories from being lost and to encourage you to go and visit the locations. - - - - If  you have any contributions to make to this site please email me with details


These photos were kindly supplied by Jim Corbett whose mother and father are showing Michael Powell and crew over their estate in 1945 during the filming of IKWIG
Can you identify the other people (apart from MP) here? Michael Powell with Mr & Mrs Corbett in the foreground but again who are the two further away? Michael Powell at Moy Castle with Mrs Corbett - Is the other man Roger Livesey's stand in? I think Michael Powell and Wendy Hiller on the far right but other are indistinguishable. Mr & Mrs Corbett with Michael Powell from left but again who are the three to the right?

The Western Isles Hotel

The Western Isles Hotel

The coastal hilltop property is a landmark hotel in the fishing port of Tobermory and its image has appeared on countless postcards, book covers and jigsaw puzzles.

Built in 1883, it was used as an officers’ mess during the second World War and was the location for the 1940s film I Know Where I’m Going.

The Western Isles Hotel overlooks the harbour and bay with its famous frontage of brightly-painted buildings.

Facilities include 28 en-suite bedrooms to sleep 56, a conservatory lounge bar and a residents’ lounge (each able to seat 50 guests), a dining room to seat 56 people (or 80 at a function), an adjacent 30-seat private dining room, and a 31-seat meeting room.


IKWIG TOUR Film Locations

Map of Mull with pin locations Nancy Franklin on her first tour Robert Beveridge succeeds again!

If you would like to visit the IKWIG film locations click on the panel above for my IKWIG Tour guide.

This will take you to all the locations on Mull in IKWIG and then a few extra ones as well.
This is a map with "stick-pins" to give an idea of the layout between locations. Although nearly all interior shots in the film were re-created back at Denham studios in London the exterior locations are astonishing!

Nancy Franklin was my inspiration, in Mark Cousins' short extra (I know where I'm Going! Revisited) on the IKWIG DVD (see below left), to actually go to Mull. This is Nancy's own photo of her self at Moy Castle.

I do recommend visiting the island - it might just change your life too.

Professor Robert Beveridge, supreme organiser has quietly moved mountains and managed to secured a listed building status on our phone box. The famouse red phone box at Carsaig is now safe! (No. +44 (0)1681-704203) It was in danger of being removed due to lack of use. So if you have a spare minute give it a ring and see if anyone answers.

Badly dubed Wedded not Bedded version alas.

"I reached the point of thinking there were no more masterpieces to discover, until I saw

I Know Where I'm Going!"

Martin Scorsese

It has lots of extras on including Mark Cousin's IKWIG revisited and Nancy Franklins photo essay.

It is completely down to watching Nancy Franklin's photo essay that I ever thought of actually going to Mull and visiting the where IKWIG was made.

Pam Cook's brilliant book about IKWIG and the inspiration behind it.

An mine of information for all

P & P fans.

Eric Britton tells us that the script he saw starts with lines form Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love, or hate,

For will in us is over-rul'd by fate.....

I think this sheet music pre-dates the film.

SC has a copy with tartan on the front and references to IKWIG
