Researching responsible tourism in Scotland

Scotland’s environment, society and culture are what sets us apart as a destination – they are the things that make a visit to our country so special. It's because of this, that responsible tourism is embedded within Scotland's tourism strategy, Scotland Outlook 2030, which you can view on the Scottish Tourism Alliance website. You can read more about our commitment to responsible tourism in our Strategic Framework.

Our vision is for Scotland to be a leader in 21st century tourism with a thriving, responsible visitor economy.

To support the responsible tourism ambitions and strategies we will:

  • Share relevant, rich insights to support businesses, partners and stakeholders in their strategic and business planning.
  • Undertake research and analysis to develop an understanding of responsible tourism indicators and issues.
  • Keep ahead of changing consumer attitudes and behaviours.
