COVID-19 Business Support and Continuity (Tourism) top-up fund

In January 2022, the Scottish Government announced the funding of up to £9 million for tourism. This was to mitigate the impact of public health measures introduced to limit the rapid spread of the Omicron variant. The idea behind the money was to recognise:

  • The economic impact of the steps people were to take
  • The loss of revenue specifically between 8 December 2021 and 21 January 2022.


We contacted businesses which were previously supported by us under this fund directly by email. Before we could make any payments, we asked them to confirm basic information.

This process has now closed and eligible businesses will receive a top-up payment of £6,800 under the Fund.
