Drivers can expect disruption in Lochgilphead town centre on Wednesday June 13 – when Hollywood comes to town.

Between 8am-8pm a film crew might be seen around Lorne Street, Argyll Street, Union Street, Bishopton Road and Manse Brae, with traffic lights occasionally in use to control vehicle flow in streets around the town centre while filming is taking place.

The movie being shot this week around Argyll is ‘Love me to Death’, and the production company, Whiskey and Wine Ltd, said: ‘We have received permission from Argyll and Bute Council to temporarily hold traffic on Argyll Street for short periods of time. This will be carried out my contraflow on our behalf and will be constantly monitored to ensure minimal disruption.’

‘To facilitate filming it will be necessary to park our technical vehicles as near to the location (the upper end of Argyll Street) as possible, and for this reason we have also arranged to suspend a section of parking in the Lorne Street Car Park.

‘We would be grateful if you could refrain from parking in any coned areas on Wednesday June 13.

‘Any parking that is not being used on the day will, of course, be made available again as usual. We will not be seeking to control any of the parking on Argyll Street or Lorne Street themselves so on street parking will be available throughout the day.

‘Whilst here we will endeavour to keep any disruption to a minimum, and access and egress to all properties will, of course, be maintained at all times. We would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience that filming may cause.’
