MSP Reception for Go Rural leads to agreement to explore growth potential of agri-tourism

Graeme Day, MSP hosted a parliamentary reception this week for Go Rural, the innovative rural tourism marketing product, which was launched Summer 2012 and which is supported by Scottish Land & Estates.        

Scottish Land & Estates attended the reception which saw a good turn out from MSPs, other supporting partners and business members.  After lively discussion and debate, Cabinet Secretary, Richard Lochhead MSP agreed to convene a meeting of stakeholders relevant to the agri-tourism debate.  The meeting is to take place within the next 4-6 weeks and will explore the profile and potential for growth of agri-tourism in Scotland.  Caroline Millar, one of the founding directors of Go Rural, has recently returned from a Nuffield Scholarship fact-finding trip to Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania.  Last year Caroline visited Italy and she will soon depart for Canada, followed by a trip to Japan over the summer.  Caroline’s experience of the agri-tourism product in other countries highlights the potential Scotland has to develop this product.
