Regional eUpdate - October 2014

2014 is the year when Scotland welcomes the world and with a significant increase in overseas visitors, the tourism industry is doing just that.

The successful staging of The Ryder Cup, the Glasgow Commonwealth Games and Homecoming Scotland 2014 has helped to make this a momentous year for Scottish tourism and we still have a couple of months to go.

2014 has taken Scotland’s profile and reputation to even greater heights and we are all determined to make the most of this for the future. As we head into the 2015 Year of Food and Drink and beyond, we will develop and build on all we have achieved together.

Now we need to get out there and take Scotland to the world to ensure that every single corner of the globe is inspired by all Scotland has to offer, from innovative venues and hotels to breathtaking scenery and adventurous opportunities.

I am delighted that readers of Rough Guides have voted Scotland as one of the friendliest countries in the world. We are famed for the warmth of our welcome and this is a true testimony to that.

Enjoy this month’s eUpdate.

Kind regards
Malcolm Roughead OBE,
Chief Executive, VisitScotland
