MI6's Scottish Headquarters, as seen in The World Is Not Enough (1999).

The Castle Thane temporarily housed the headquarters of the British Secret Intelligence Service (SIS, MI6) during the events of the 1999 James Bond film The World Is Not Enough. The facility was later featured in the 2004 video-game Everything or Nothing.


Following a terrorist attack on the SIS Building in London orchestrated by the anarchist Renard, the Secret Intelligence Service temporarily is head-quartered at an undisclosed location in Scotland. Located in a remote Scottish castle, the facility was equipped with a Q-Branch laboratory, medical facilities and a lavish meeting room. Notably, a portrait of Sir Miles Messervy (the original M portrayed by Bernard Lee) hangs behind the conference room's table. The castle would later be featured in the 2004 video-game Everything or Nothing.


  • The castle is in fact Eilean Donan castle, located near the Isle of Skye, West Scotland and is the same castle used in the British-American action fantasy film Highlander (1986).[1]
