Leading stars Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams have been spotted on Edinburgh’s landmarks, Arthur’s Seat and Calton Hill as filming begun earlier in the week.

The two play Icelandic singers who are given the opportunity to perform at the famous song contest when it was held in the Scottish Capital in 1972.

52-year-old Ferrell was seen on Arthur’s Seat wearing bright yellow overalls and matching jacket over a plaid shirt while sporting long, damp hair, while McAdams, 40, was also seen on location wearing a pink and white jacket, maroon trousers and a black and white striped jumper with her blonde hair knotted.
