Tourism in Dumfries and Galloway
There are some very exciting times ahead for tourism in Scotland. We’re starting off in 2012 with Year of Creative Scotland, Brave and the Olympics, going into 2013 and Year of Natural Scotland, and finishing in 2014 with the Year of Homecoming, Ryder Cup and the Commonwealth Games.
Every tourism business in the country can reap the benefits of these ‘Winning Years’ and in Dumfries and Galloway I discussed how we can make the most of these years with local tourism industry leaders at the Creetown Gem Museum, which itself has a great deal to offer visitors.
The meeting centred around partnership working and it was clear that by working together we can make the most of these marvellous opportunities for every business involved in the sector, from B&Bs right up to largest resorts.
