The film has magnificent settings, as beautiful as the Scottish Highlands themselves are , where much of the action of this film is centered. However, "Braveheart" was not shot exclusively in Scotland, but some of its locations are in Ireland. A video posted a few days ago by Going to the Movies makes a complete and a very good tour of those locations, showing us their current appearance and how they appeared in the film:

You can see here some screenshots with a small part of the sites covered by the video. We start with this mountain in the vicinity of Lanark, Scotland, an area where many scenes from the first part of the film were filmed, which shows Wallace's childhood and youth.

The churchyard of St Nicholas Church at Dunsany Castle, Ireland, an Anglo-Norman castle located in County Meath, in the province of Leinster, in the western part of the Republic of Ireland. The castle began to be built at the end of the 12th century, and the Church is from the mid-15th century. The wedding scene between Prince Edward of England and Princess Elizabeth of France was filmed there.

Bective Abbey, also located in County Meath, Ireland. It was built in the 12th century and abandoned in the 16th century. Part of the London Palace scenes were filmed there and the dungeon where Wallace is locked up.

Trim Castle, also in County Meath, Ireland. It is the largest castle in the Republic of Ireland. It was built by the Anglo-Normans in the 12th century. Several scenes of the film set in London and York (England) were filmed there.
