Countryside Visitors - Who Pays?
Rural tourism makes a massive contribution to Scotland’s economy, including generating £1.2 billion from walking tourism alone, as well as improving the country’s social capital in terms of health and wellbeing.
But many who live in rural communitie are not getting their fair share of the benefits.
SEDA Land is running a conversation on how more of the fiscal and other benefits generated by visitors - tourists, day-trippers, dog-walkers, mountain-bikers and other extreme sports enthusiasts - to the countryside might be channelled back into the affected areas.
