Amazon's LotR series reportedly to shoot in Scotland.

Article at the Daily Record: Amazon's £1bn Lord of the Rings series set to be filmed at new Scots studio.
Scotland’s new film studio has been handed a massive boost before it has even opened.

The £1billion Lord of the Rings series is set to be filmed at the new facility – if it is ready on time.

Arts body Creative Scotland plan to appoint an operator for the huge facility in Leith, Edinburgh, and have it up and running this year.

Amazon Studios’ blockbuster based on JRR Tolkien’s books has been lined up as its first major client.

A three-month filming and production run by the online streaming giants will begin in August.

Now, it might yet turn out that Scotland is only one of several shooting locations. Thoughts?

My initial reaction was one of shock, then of delight: I am named after that very place in Scotland where they're going to start filming.

I think it's not likely that this is where they'll be filming for Numenor: more likely to me is that Scotland could be used for Lindon or Eriador, which is, after all, where a large part of the show could take place, and also for interior filming. Numenor, I expect, will be filmed in the "warmer place" mentioned in the article.
