Glen Etive in Lochaber, the stunning location used in the James Bond movie Skyfall, is now a hot spot for the dumping of rubbish. A campaign has started to combat the littering, which has seen mattresses and tents left discarded in recent weeks.

Local residents Phillipa and Mark Shone have been publishing images of the littering on their Facebook page - Glen Etive - the Dirty Truth on Facebook.

Scenes for Sam Mendes' Skyfall - the most successful British movie of all time - were filmed in the area, with Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench both visiting Glen Etive during filming.

The National Trust for Scotland, which owns the land, said illegal dumping was a concern.

A trust spokesman said: "This is undoubtedly an issue for us.

"Every year we remove hundreds of bags of rubbish.

"This work, while clearly vital, diverts staff from important conservation work in the area. It also leaves our charity with the costs for disposing of this rubbish."

In the Facebook group, Mark Shone, 29, said the Glen Etive community had for years tried to combat antisocial behaviour but to no avail. He claims that visitors to the glen adopt a "festival mentality" and leaves bags of rubbish, tents, beer cans and paraphernalia when they depart.

The 14 mile glen has also served as a location for two of the Harry Potter movies.

Sam Mendes and Daniel Craig are about to start production on the next Bond movie, with 'Skyfall' scribe John Logan once again writing the script. The movie is scheduled for release on October 23, 2014.
