Hollywood comes to Scotwood!


SCOTWOOD Interiors turned its talents to film sets recently when it created internal boxes to transform an old factory in Cumbernauld for the filming of Outlander.

Principal photography and filming for the hit American show took place in a former warehouse and Scotwood converted the interiors so that the crew could move in and film parts of the series adapted from Diana Gabaldon’s international best-selling books.
Scotwood director Douglas Kerr (above), said, “There appears to be no limits to the diversity of our contracts! We deliver the full spectrum from major private office block developments and new public sector building contracts right through to the simple fitting out of an environment for filming purposes.”
The Outlander series is shown on premium American cable channel Starz and is set to be equally big here in the UK. The story revolves around a young Scottish warrior, combining romance, science fiction, history and adventure into one epic tale.
Douglas Kerr added, “Admittedly this isn’t our usual job but it’s fun to contribute construction skills to a different creative industry and as more filming is highly likely in Scotland we hope to continue to be involved.”
