Welcome Schemes

 

A range of Welcome Schemes have been developed by VisitScotland, to complement the Quality Assurance schemes and to guide those visitors with a range of interests to businesses that pay particular attention to their varied needs. Welcome Schemes are open to Quality Assured and non Quality Assured businesses. The schemes, based on the provision of facilities and services, recognise the special efforts made by businesses to provide for visitors.

 

The Welcome Schemes have been developed in consultation with experts in the field they represent. During development VisitScotland worked with organisations such as the Mountaineering Club for Scotland, Cycle Tourism Forum, The Scottish Country Sports Tourism Group and St Andrews Links Trust who have an inside knowledge of the visitors’ particular needs.

 

We need to ensure that the hospitality encountered by our visitors meets, or preferably exceeds, their expectations. It is essential that anyone wishing to join any of the Welcome Schemes does so out of a genuine desire to have a flexible and inclusive approach to accommodate their visitors’ diverse needs.

 

To apply to any of the VisitScotland Welcome Schemes, please complete the application form and return it to our Customers Service Team.
