Scotland is known for its friendly, passionate people when greeting visitors and we believe as a Responsible Tourism Destination we must ensure that the same warm welcome is extended to all.
That’s why supporting Purple Tuesday is so important to us, we are committed to improving accessibility and inclusion. In partnership with organisations advocating on behalf of people with accessibility requirements, we offer support, resources and advice to tourism and events businesses to help them make their offering more inclusive.
Everyone should be able to benefit from a holiday and the lifetime of memories they can create. Tourism is a force for good, creating jobs and contributing significantly to the economy - but the impact of tourism spreads far beyond the industry, supporting health and wellbeing.
