We are delighted to be a winner in two categories of the Scottish Thistle Regional Tourism Awards and we now go forward to compete in both categories in the prestigious Thistle Awards final in March. We were awarded the “Best Holiday Accommodation” and “Discovering Scotland” awards at the Regional Finals of the Scottish Thistle Awards held on Friday November 7th at Hampden Park Glasgow.
The Awards recognize success, excellence and quality in Scotland’s Tourism Industry across a range of different categories. We beat stiff competition on both Awards but were particularly delighted for our Sales Manager, Marie McGhee for winning the “Discovering Scotland” Award, which is for individuals who go the extra mile in providing an outstanding visitor experience.
On our tenth anniversary it is very rewarding to be recognized for the unique experience and individual attention that we offer all our guests.
David Adams McGilp, VisitScotland Regional Director said “Argyll and the Isles tourism businesses are certainly leading the charge when it comes to excellence, and that’s exactly what the Scottish Thistle Awards is all about; celebrating those who are doing everything they can to ensure visitors are offered the warmest possible welcome and a first-class memorable experience”
A total of 670 businesses were nominated for the Scottish Thistle Awards in 2014 with 555 businesses entering the regional heats. A panel comprising of some of the most senior figures in Scottish tourism, as well as Tourism Ambassadors were responsible for determining the winners in each category.
The Scottish Thistle Awards will form part of the Signature Programme, part of Scotland Tourism Week 2015, running from March 3-5. Glasgow will be the hub of Scotland’s Tourism Industry for three days, showcasing Scotland as an ultimate destination for food and drink tourism and Scottish hospitality.
