FOOD and drink tourism in Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park has grown to a value of £60 million in the past two years.
According to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority, the organisation responsible for running and promoting the region, food and drink has become a more prominent factor in peoples’ decision to visit the area.
“As well as having some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland, the National Park is also home to some of the country’s finest produce and most talented producers as well as a growing range of great places to eat,” said chief executive Gordon Watson.
“It’s great to see this drawing in more visitors and creating such significant growth in the visitor economy as well as creating jobs.”
The food and drink sector in the area is now said to be responsible for maintaining more than 1000 jobs.
