About the fund

The £3 million fund was delivered by VisitScotland on behalf of Scottish Government and was developed with input from the Scottish Tourist Guides Association (STGA). 

The tour guiding sector has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, yet their contribution to visitors’ memorable experiences is substantial. The Fund aimed to help keep tour guides operating while restrictions on opening and travel are still in place, and to support them to prepare to operate in 2021 when restrictions are lifted.
