Whisky Galore producer brands lack of film studios a ‘national disgrace’

Mr Wands, chairman of the Association of Film and Television Practitioners Scotland, said: “It is a national disgrace that Scotland is the only country in the UK and Europe that does not have its own film studio.

“At this present time the film and TV industry is worth more in revenue to Scotland than the oil industry, but we are losing out to other nations and regions across Europe because we lack this basic facility.”

Proposals have been made to spend hundreds of millions of pounds on studios in Dundee and on the outskirts of Edinburgh, with the latter suffering planning delays.
