Kiloren

Kiloren is a fictional Hebridean island featured in
I Know Where I'm Going
(Powell & Pressburger, 1945). The film is about an ambitious young woman who is travelling to Kiloren to marry a rich man she doesn't love, who has bought a big house on the island from the poverty stricken laird. Bad weather delays her trip but she is determined to get there and pays an inexperienced young man to row her across the channel which nearly results in their death. She never reaches the island and instead falls in love with the poor laird.
