Funding to develop tourism in North Ayrshire.Scot_Flag_7105928XLrg_alt

North Ayrshire Council has been awarded £400,000 to develop tourism across Ayrshire’s island and coastal destinations.

The Coig (Scots Gaelic for five) touring route initiative will provide the west coast of Scotland, the Firth of Clyde and islands with a new opportunity to brand and promote itself to national and international visitors.

The funding will complement the region’s tourism strategy, Making Waves, and support further development and promotion of Ayrshire through support for events.

Marine and coastal tourism is a key part of Scotland’s tourism sector, providing employment for 28,300 people across the country.

2020 has been designated as the Year of Coasts and Waters, organised to inspire responsible engagement and inclusive participation from visitors and locals, and encourage them to experience all that Scotland’s shores have to offer.
