To ask the Scottish Government what steps it is taking to promote tourism in island communities.
Answered by: Fiona Hyslop 26 April 2017
Scotland’s islands are a key draw to tourists, with their varied and evocative landscapes and rich cultures and traditions. Recognising this, VisitScotland continues to promote the islands, through marketing campaigns, social media, trade and press familiarisation trips and through its iCentres and VisitScotland Information Partner programme arrangements with local businesses and community groups.
