Gerard Butler, Sir Chris Hoy, Alex McLeish and Judy Murray are among the celebrities to feature in the new For The Love of Scotland short film, which highlights the work of National Trust for Scotland.

The three-minute film covers a 'love-hate' relationship with everything from potholes to the weather, as the celebrities chat about what Scotland means to them.

Not just a lovely day out

Speaking on the BBC website, National Trust for Scotland spokesman Mark Bishop said: Everything we do is for the love of Scotland. The hundreds of thousands of members, donors, volunteers, visitors and staff do what they do because they care about Scotland and we thought it was time to recognise that.

"The National Trust for Scotland isn't just here for a lovely day out, it stands for something much bigger than that.

"We're about coastlines and castles, art and architecture, wildlife and wilderness. We're here to protect our natural and national treasures for everyone to enjoy."

"In creating this campaign, we've been heartened by the extraordinary passion we've tapped - from multi-award-winning actors and sporting royalty to our hard-working staff and volunteers and everyone else who champions our work.

"We have harnessed that support to help us shout louder about the important role we play in caring for Scotland now and forever."
