Survey Link and Covering Letter From SCSTG Chair

Field sports tourism revenue has a particular importance to the Scottish rural tourism sector, supporting the shoulder months and extending the overall tourism season. This seasonality was used as a justification for shootings and deer forests being excluded from the initial financial support packages given to all other industries at the time of lockdown. Government policy has subsequently prevented businesses from receiving this vital seasonal income and the next stage of our effort is to ensure a meaningful rescue package that protects vital jobs in highly rural areas. In demonstrating the importance of support, we need credible data to support our representations to minsters and I strongly urge all Providers to complete a short online survey as a matter of urgency via this LINK
