Tourist sites in Scotland’s rural areas such as Clydesdale can now apply for a share of £3 million funding aimed at helping them meet the demand of growing visitor numbers.

The Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund (RTIF) – administered by VisitScotland - aims to help tourist attractions and their communities deal with the impact of increased visitor numbers on the local infrastructure by helping with improvements such as parking areas, visitor facilities and recycling points.

Communities across Clydesdale should apply for the latest round of RTIF funding.

The importance of a fund dedicated to helping deal with increasing demand can be seen by the level of interest from across Scotland in the Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund since its creation in 2017.

Clydesdale is blessed with vibrant, active communities, as well as beautiful surroundings and history. This fund can provide a vital step in growing tourism potential in Clydesdale, and provide innovative initiatives to develop the industry further locally.

Applications are now open, and I call on local projects in Clydesdale to work with South Lanarkshire Council in making an application.

Application forms can be found here:
