Islands Visitor Survey

 

The Islands Visitor Survey 2017 was undertaken by Progressive Partnership and MKA Economics on behalf of a number of organisations for the islands of Orkney, the Outer Hebrides and Shetland. Fieldwork was conducted for the year from January to December 2017.

 

The survey provides a wealth of information regarding the visitor journey on leisure, business and visiting friends and family (VFR) visitors to the islands. This includes overnight and day trip visitors.

 

In addition, the Islands Visitor Survey gathered information to estimate the volume and value of visitors to each island for 2017.
