How did they decide to make the Dwarves Scottish/Irish?

This is actually one of my favorite things about the Dwarves, their accents give so much personality and dimension to the characters. Whose idea was this? I've looked through quite a few pre and post production videos and haven't seen one word spoken about the design of the Dwarves in detail, only that he wanted them to each have a unique silhouette so as to be able to tell them apart. In particular, Balin and Dwalin really stood out to me. Ken Stott did a phenomenal job.
