Blackness Castle near Edinburgh was used for both internal and external scenes set in Elsinore Castle in the Franco Zeffirelli version of Hamlet. The location used for Ophelia's first appearance in the movie is the large hall in the Stern tower. Also appearing in the movie is the entrance to this tower, the adjacent courtyard and the nearby battlements of the castle. The large interior rooms seen in Hamlet were sets built at Shepperton Studios in England.
