S5O-02616: Liam McArthur (Orkney Islands)

Scottish Liberal Democrats

Date lodged: 21 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with Destination Orkney regarding plans to develop tourism in Orkney.

Answered by: Ben Macpherson 28 November 2018

The Scottish Government has had no direct discussions with Destination Orkney. Our support for tourism businesses is delivered through VisitScotland, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise.

I'd like to wish all the best to those attending Orkney’s first ever ‘Tourism Week’ this week and for Destination Orkney’s annual Tourism Summit tomorrow. VisitScotland’s Director of Industry & Destination Development will be speaking.
