Roseanna Welcomes Success for Local Business in Tourism Awards

The Scottish National Party's Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire, has congratulated a number of businesses in her constituency that last night received awards in the North East & Tayside Regional Finals of VisitScotland's Scottish Thistle Awards - the 'Oscars' of Scottish Tourism.

Speaking today (Wednesday) Ms Cunningham said:

"Many congratulations to Scotland's Larder in Kinross, Gleneagles Hotel and the company that runs the Ring of Breadalbane Explorer bus route on their successes in the regional finals of Visit Scotland's Scottish Thistle Awards.

"Scotland's Larder was successful in not one but two categories – Best Shopping Experience and Best Café, Bar or Restaurant- while Gleneagles secured the award for Training & Skills Development and the Breadalbane Tourism Co-operative were given the Partnership in Tourism Award.

"Best wishes to them all as they go forward to the National Awards final in November.

"Well done too, to my constituents from The Roost in Bridge of Earn who were also nominated in the Best Café, Bar or Restaurant category and to all the other Perthshire businesses who won awards or were nominated.

"Coming on top of the news that Barley Bree in Muthill was last night named Scottish Restaurant of the Year at the Scottish Restaurant Awards this really was a very good night indeed for local businesses in the tourism sector.

"The message we are sending to potential visitors is loud and clear - there is a stunning range of top quality attractions, places to stay and places to eat here in Perthshire, come and sample them for yourself!"
