Scottish Bollywood map to attract Indian tourists
TOURISM chiefs hope a new “Bollywood” movie map will help attract thousands of Indian film fans to Scotland.
Some of the country’s scenic locations have been deployed over the past 17 years, including Glencoe, Loch Lomond, Glen Nevis and the Old Man of Storr on Skye.
Now the sites used for 23 different productions have been featured in the map, which the Indian travel trade will be urged to use to help encourage visits to Scotland.
