Advisory Visits


If you are new to tourism, refurbishing or looking to achieve a specific grading, an advisory visit (prior to your star grading visit) can provide:

  • A face-to-face opportunity to ask questions and get feedback about your business in advance of a Quality Assurance grading assessment
  • The benefit of our Quality and Tourism Advisors’ extensive knowledge and experience
  • Signposting to other useful VisitScotland contacts, information and advice, and any other relevant external bodies
  • Specific advice tailored to your business on the key areas which will positively impact on your customers
  • An accurate reflection of current standards and advice on how to maximise the potential of your business

An advisory visit will help you make informed decisions, highlight your business’s strengths and weakness, decide what improvements to make and could save you money in the long term.


If you would like an Advisory Visit or to find out more please fill out the enquiry form.
