Support for forest tourism

 
The partnership organisation to support companies operating in the mountain biking sector has received new backing from the Scottish Government. Tourism Secretary Fiona Hyslop has announced £50,000 for the Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland project for the coming year, to help deliver on a national strategic framework for mountain biking.
 
The sector is predominately made up of small, private businesses and the new funding will ensure they have leadership at a national level to help them thrive. A relatively new sector, mountain bike tourism has seen rapid growth and now generates more than £100 million annually for the Scottish economy.
 
Fiona Hyslop made the announcement at the Forest Tourism Summit, at Glentress Forest near Peebles. As set out in the Programme for Government, forest tourism has been identified as driver for economic growth in south Scotland.
