GLOBAL hip-hop star Kanye West has flown a private jet to the Isle of Skye to shoot scenes for his latest music video.

The iconic artist - who is married to Kim Kardashian - is understood to have filmed at the dramatic Lealt Falls in Trotternish with a crew of around 60 people and several helicopters.

He was filming at Scotland's largest island to promote his new single Waves,

It is understood the shoot began several days ago with video director Hype Williams said to have been scouting suitable locations last week.

Another potential backdrop for the music film was said to be the Old Man of Storr.

Mr West and his entourage stayed at Skeabost House Hotel on Sunday night, taking half of the venue’s 14 rooms.

The 37-year-old star’s own room was the largest in the property, with a 4 poster bed

It is understood the rapper performed in front of the island's spectacular scenery before returning for a meal ahead of a flight leaving from Inverness airport.

The hotel - which charges up to £224 a night for dinner, bed and breakfast - was acquired last year by Anne Gracie and Ken Gunn, who own two other hotels on the island.

“Kanye was the perfect guest - charming, courteous and polite,” Ms Gracie said.

West is in the UK to promote his latest album The Life of Pablo which was launched in February.

Scott Armstrong, VisitScotland’s Regional Director for the Highlands, said: “We’re delighted that Kanye West has decided to shoot his latest video on Skye.

"This stunning island is proving a huge draw for film makers, with Prometheus, Macbeth and Steven Spielberg’s The BFG among the many high-profile movies to be shot here in recent years.

"Kanye West is a global superstar and I’m sure Scotland’s appearance in one of his music videos will inspire even more people to ‘touch the Skye’.”

A Creative Scotland spokesperson said: “It’s great to have [Kanye West] on the west coast of Scotland.

“Recently voted the world's Best Cinematic Destination, Film and TV producers spent a record £45.8m shooting on location in Scotland in 2014. This record production spend figure – an increase of almost £12m compared with 2013 - demonstrates a fast growing appetite from major film, high-end TV, commercial and video music producers to use Scotland as a location.”
