SKYECONNECT WELCOMES HIGHLAND COUNCIL FUNDING FOR VISITOR MANAGEMENT
SkyeConnect has welcomed The Highland Council Tourism Committee’s decision to agree a visitor management plan for 2022 to support the growth in visitors to the Highlands and Islands.
The funding package will enable the continuation of the valuable Ranger service on Skye for another year along with specific parking projects at the Fairy Glen, Kilt Rock, Coral Beach and Elgol.
The Highland Council has also committed significant sums to carry out key infrastructure improvements. These include nearly a quarter of a million pounds on road improvements and over four hundred thousand pounds on waste management and public toilet provision.
SkyeConnect’s Project Manager, Alistair Danter has warmly welcomed the investment.
“The Highland Council is to be applauded for recognising the importance of the tourism economy to the Highlands. Infrastructure improvements are vital if we are to continue to provide visitors with great experiences. I am particularly pleased that funding has been secured for the Ranger service across the Highlands and specifically here on Skye. The Rangers did a fantastic job this year advising visitors and protecting our vulnerable locations. We look forward to seeing them at our most popular sites again next year.”
