Scottish Agritourism Destination Leaders Announced

Tue 1 Sep 20

Leaders in Scottish Agritourism from around Scotland are set to help grow agritourism in their own region, working with local destination management groups and food groups to roll out the Go Rural consumer facing brand to signify visitors are welcome on a real working farm.

The leaders will come together virtually and hopefully Covid permitting in person on a quarterly basis to share information on what’s going on in their area and to feed into a national growth plan.

The individuals, who all run established agritourism businesses, will work with Visit Scotland and others to ensure that day visits and overnight stays on farms are all promoted as unique experiences with a chance to taste Scottish food at source and to learn more about farming in an enjoyable way.

The leaders are -

  • Carole Short - Down on the Farm | Aberdeenshire
  • Kay Wilson - Lennox of Lomond  | Argyll & The Isles
  • Alisa Currie - Bellevue Farm | Ayrshire and Arran
  • Murray McConchie - 3 Little Huts and Mossyard | Dumfries and Galloway
