The weak pound has been attributed with responsibility for an 18% growth in UK tourism spending while in Scotland foreign spending surged by 27% on last year. We must assume the difference is due to other factors some of which I may have identified in:
North Americans lead surge in Scottish tourism because they feel safer here
‘Outlander links see visitors to historic sites soaring’
Visitors to Scotland’s historic sites surge by 470 000 to reach more than 4.5 million, breaking all records, in only 11 months!
Once more we have evidence of the fast-growing strength in the Scottish economy I’ve referred to in earlier pieces.
