Tourism for the community
With the holiday season in full flood and the prospect of flying increasingly fraught with cancellations and long queues, the staycation could be here to stay. Tourism has always been hugely important to the Scottish economy – estimated to generate £6bn – and many communities have begun to develop services and facilities in an attempt to capture some of that tourist cash for the common good. Recently some folk from different parts of the country have started to join the dots of the community tourism picture, recently launching a new national network – SCOTO. The potential of community tourism is massive.
