Showbiz in Stranraer

From ITV

Dumfries and Galloway could be the setting for a new multi-million pound film about the flight of Bonnie Prince Charlie to Skye.
Filmmakers, including Producer Mairi Sutherland and Fight Arranger Seoras Wallace, have been in Stranraer today to discuss how the area could be used in the production of The Great Getaway.
They're hoping the area could be used to film the infamous Battle of Culloden.

The film will follow Charles Edward Stuart, also known as Bonnie Prince Charlie, from the moment his Scottish forces lost the last battle on British soil, against English troops.

Producer Mairi Sutherland was born in Dumfries, and is hoping to film in the region, and train extras: "The nearby West Freugh aerodrome hangers make this all a definite possibility, when travel to the Highlands could put up costs and add to the journey times of cast and crew.

"Not only that Dumfries and Galloway has a certain quality of light that is good on film and is a popular destination with film makers."
