Lanarkshire has been becoming more and more prevalent in the film industry - from Gregory’s Girl to hit television series Outlander, both of which are filmed in Cumbernauld, the latter boasting its own studio at Wardpark. Cumbernauld Glen has also been used by the Outlander crew to illustrate some of their North Carolina locations.

North Lanarkshire has been the location of several well-known television series in the last few years, including Vigil, Karen Pirrie, Scot Squad, Crime and Shetland.

It's thanks to Lanarkshire's healthy mix of natural, rural and built environments that make it such a great location for filming.  On the big screen, it has featured in notable films, The Batman, Tetris, The Last Bus and The Outlaw King. 

Last year saw the opening of a new 32,000 sq. ft studio in Coatbridge – Nightsky, which has already hosted the latest series of comedy, Two Doors Down, as well as Black Mirror and Deadshot.
