Professor Lennon of the Moffat Centre explains the enormous importance of the data collection and research commissioned by SkyeConnect that will inform the tourism strategy for Skye going forward.
The initial results were released at our Autumn Conference held the Sligachan Hotel on 18 November. Professor Lennon explains how the economic impact report will enable SkyeConnect to seek government funding and will inform our ask or request from central government and the Highland Council for additional funds for infrastructure investment. He also explains how the report can inform action on environmental issues and what our visitors are looking for (maybe learn how to say welcome in a different language!).
