A private-sector survey of marketing practices and opinions of accommodation providers in the new Teviot Valleys Special Landscape Area of the Scottish Borders has recently been published. The report highlights that a major marketing opportunity is being lost by the Scottish tourism industry operating within the spectacularly unspoilt "Carter Bar Panorama" in the Scottish Borders. Coherent management of scenic assets, cultural heritage, tourism and events programmes (as provided by the Northumberland National Park Authority) does not exist on the Scottish side of Carter Bar.
The survey highlights a strong appetite for joint marketing in the new Teviot Valleys SLA, concern about windfarm developments in the Carter Bar Panorama and identifies 164 jobs relating to accommodation provision within this remote rural area. A full copy of the report is attached.
