FSB welcomes investment on Skye

Welcoming the £300,000 investment (Highland Leader and Scottish Government) in improved parking at two key natural attractions on Skye, FSB’s Highlands & Islands Development Manager, David Richardson, said,

“Deep concerns about the inadequacy of parking at natural attractions were raised forcibly in a survey of Skye businesses that we conducted in August 2016, and we have been beating the drum for urgent investment at key pressure points ever since. FSB members on Skye will be delighted.

“If we look after our visitors they will look after us, and it is essential that we invest more money in this sort of project. The Highland Leader programme and Scottish Government deserve credit for their investment on Skye, but the investment cannot stop at the Fairy Pools and Quiraing. If we really want to maximise the economic and social benefits that tourism brings, we must ensure that every Scottish tourism hotspot is supported by modern, fit-for-purpose infrastructure.”
