Started going in alphabetical order from the "List of castles in Scotland", and the first one was Craigmillar Castle!

I really wouldn't be surprised if this was the Pit Stop for the leg in Edinburgh, now we just need to locate where those darn bagpipe players are :lol: It's not Holyrood on further inspection, and the other place it could have been (New Register House) doesn't have the triangular arch above the windows

According to the info on the web, there are many black sand beaches in the west coast of New Zealand.

I think I need a second pair of eyes to look at a potential match to our cemetery - can somebody please look at Canongate Cemetery please? I see the multitude of paths in both the still from the introduction and actual pictures of it, just want to know if its a match

Thank you everyone :)

Hmm... The church behind doesn't match - unless I'm looking at the wrong photos?

If it helps in your search the grave reads "...DER... GLOCK"!

I know, the roof didn't match up (woops...) I was reading it as king something :lol: Ill continue my search - some cemeteries already searched are Dean Cemetery, Mortonhall Cemetery, Calton Burial Grounds and Canongate, all are in Edinburgh so I might switch to Belfast if the search is still coming up short :)

The church is Aberlady Parish Curch near Gosford House - https://ssl.panoramio.com/photo/40217465Scratch that it looks like it's Duddingston Kirk

Which would make sense seeing as teams were spotted at the Holiday Inn in the Cowgate asking for directions and heading east and the kirk is on the eastern side of Arthur's Seat, which I think is the hill in the background of 29

I FOUND OUR GRAVESTONE! With thanks to Mattjimf's excellent location spotting, this was found when typing in "Duddingston Kirk Graveyard"





Neobie, we were both so far off with what was on the gravestone :lol:

Great effort you guys!

Not Bora Bora, but Tautira on Tahiti Island.



Just a random shot taken while production was in transit? This is on the far side of Tahiti though (Tahiti Iti) and about two hours' drive away from the airport.
