Hugh MacDonald interviews novelist and filmmaker Margot McCuaig
I was featured in the Bella Caledonia this weekend, the monthly colour magazine produced in collaboration with the National newspaper.
Hugh MacDonald is a powerful writer and he made an excellent job of exploring my filmmaking, my background, my novel writing and my love of history, football culture and Rathlin Island.
Here’s a link to an online version of the article.
I’ll hopefully be in a position to post some news on forthcoming writing / directing projects very soon.

I’m a novelist and award-winning documentary filmmaker.
My debut novel, 'The Birds That Never Flew', was shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize and longlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. 'Almost Then', my second novel, was published by Linen Press in April 2021.
I write, produce and direct documentary films and won Royal Television Society Scotland awards in 2015 with 'Jock Stein' and for 'Jim Baxter' in 2016. 'Jimmy Johnstone' was nominated for a bronze Torc for Excellence in 2017. My feature length documentary film 'Tommy Burns won a Royal Television Society award in 2019 and 'The Women Who Built Glasgow City' won the same award in 2021.
I made two children who are now making children too. That's the biggest achievement of all. I live in Glasgow, Scotland and Rathlin Island, Ireland.
