Film Crew Set to Roll into Falkland

By Maureen Ferrier, Fife Today

     Filming for the first series of Outlander took place in Falkland.
Filming for the first series of Outlander took place in Falkland.

Cameras will be rolling in Falkland early next year when the Outlander film crew rolls into town.

Householders in Falkland areas affected by the planned filming of series two of the saga have already been sent a newsletter which outlines the programme of events including street closures during filming and security.

Filming is scheduled for January and February, but this is subject to change – the weather could particularly affect the schedule.

Initially filming will be confined to Brunton Street, and the centre of the village around High Street, the Bruce Fountain and the Palace.

As happened when the first series was filmed in Falkland, the film company is doing everything possible to co-operate with residents and businesses, with phone numbers available to deal with any concerns.

Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married combat nurse from 1945 who is mysteriously swept back in time to 1743, and stars Caitriona Balfe, Sam Heughan and Tobias Menzies along with a host of well know Scottish actors. It is adapted from a series of eight books – so far – by American author Diana Gabaldon, and has been filmed at locations across Scotland.
