Scotland: Russian Tourists Wanted
Russia trip to attract tourists
Leading members of the Scottish tourism industry will showcase their country's charms on a visit to Russia this week in a bid to attract high-spending visitors.
They hope Russians' taste for golf, whisky and Robert Burns will draw them to the country as it gears up for Homecoming Scotland 2009, a year-long celebration of Scottish culture.
During their trip the VisitScotland trade mission aim to show Russian travel agents and tour operators exactly what Scotland has to offer for leisure and business visitors.
