This figure will allow the industry to gain in the coming three years as confirmed by VisitScotland along with Galloway Forest Park centers and the Kirkcudbright Art Gallery project.

It is believed that the investment will be a part of £16 billion which would be spent across Scotland. To quote Councilor Colin Smyth, “Tourism is vital to the local economy, supporting more than 6,000 jobs and generating an annual income of more than £300m.We agreed our new regional tourism strategy in March last year and set ourselves some challenging targets to increase the value of tourism, the number of visitors and the number of jobs in the tourism economy.

 

This money being invested in Dumfries and Galloway on a range of major projects will help us achieve our goals.” Dumfries town centre regeneration project is another scheme that would be benefited from the funds.
