During the late 1800s, the Scottish missionaries set up a large number of schools and churches in Kalimpong (present day in West Bengal, India).

Is there any Scottish population that is still there, who maintains their separate identity?

    Is this a question about history or about the current day? What research has been done, and what did you learn?

  • I searched the google for a long time but was unable to get any details past the colonial era. I want to know whether all the Scottish families went home or some choose to stay behind while still maintaining their separate identity.

  • I'm pretty sure there is a McDonald's there. (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

  • I'd be surprised if there are. It's possible that some individuals of mixed heritage may have stayed, although many were sent to New Zealand
