Local groups may want to consider making an application to the Scottish Government’s new £6m Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund.

The Scottish Government announced the fund in response to increasing visitor numbers across rural Scotland and in order to help provide the services and facilities that are needed to improve visitor experiences.

The new fund will support a wide range of improvement projects – such as parking, camping facilities, recycling points and footpath access, in areas such as the North Coast 500 route as well as at Historic Environment Scotland sites.

It can help improve the experience for the increasing number of people visiting, and alleviate pressure on transport, services and facilities across rural Scotland.

This support for infrastructure will enable even more people to enjoy this most beautiful country in the world and is an example of the SNP Scottish Government listening to and responding to the needs of rural Scotland.

The fund is aimed at areas which have experienced pressure from increased visitor numbers and is open to “accessible and remote rural areas”, excluding settlements of above 3000 people.
