Meet our Board
VisitScotland is a Scottish Government non-departmental public body. Its purpose is to promote the interests of the tourism industry across Scotland.
The Minister for Small Business, Innovation, Tourism and Trade makes appointments to our Board. This currently has eight members including our Chair, Lord Thurso.
The Board gathers around six to eight times a year. Members are responsible for approving the direction set out by our Management Team. They also provide general oversight of our practices to ensure proper management of the organisation.
We review our Board members' registers of interests each year and update them as required.
