“Within 100 miles, you can make it look like five different states.”Clint Eastwood
Standing in one of the spacious corrals at The Scott Ranch, you would almost believe you’ve stepped back in time and the Old West. Established by Scott’s grandfather, in 1904, and located in the picturesque ranching foothills of the Canadian Rockies, the ranch itself exudes authenticity. Scott’s ranching blood runs three generations deep, and the pride of heritage is evident in the careful preservation of this 100-year-old working ranch. Ranch manager, Cathy Sutherland, adeptly serves at the helm of the ranch, overseeing the cow/calf operation, the horses and a small herd of bison.Home to Scott, Sutherland and a handful of wranglers and ranch help, the quarters and land have been used for filming many a western film, and come complete with its own built-in frontier town - a former film set used in the movie Monty Walsh, starring Tom Selleck.“Within 100 miles, you can make it look like five different states.”so said Clint Eastwood when describing Alberta’s multitude of filming locals.
