Clydesdale’s MSP, Aileen Campbell, is looking forward to 2013’s Year of Natural Scotland and the opportunities it will provide to this part of the nation.

The Year of Natural Scotland is the latest of the Scottish Government’s Focus Years, showcasing some of our country’s best known tourism assets as we progress towards a second Year of Homecoming Scotland in 2014.

The Year of Natural Scotland follows the Year of Food and Drink, the Year of Active Scotland and the Year of Creative Scotland.

Aileen said:

"Scotland’s magnificent natural heritage attracts people from all over the world and the Year of Natural Scotland provides us with an excellent opportunity to make the most of our worldwide reputation as a nation of outstanding natural beauty. Clydesdale has so much to offer in this respect.

"Clydesdale’s natural environment is one of main reasons why people visit the area and next year will provide an ideal showcase for our stunning landscapes, wildlife and natural heritage.

"The Year will be used to encourage greater numbers of visitors, encourage Scots to discover or rediscover our natural heritage, boost business and enhance both the local and national economy.

"The Scottish Government’s Focus Years have already been a great success. In the country as a whole, over half a million people attended events and activities celebrating the Year of Food and Drink. We also saw a six per cent increase in "active" participation levels during the Year of Active Scotland. Messaging around the Year of Creative Scotland has already reached almost 70 million people across the globe.

"I am sure the Year of Natural Scotland will go on to build on these achievements and I’m really looking forward to doing all I can to promote and celebrate this wonderful part of the country."
