VisitScotland’s business growth fund has dished out grants to the tune of £670,000 but it says it needs more applications from Aberdeenshire, which as yet has received no money.

The fund, offering sums from £3,000 to £65,000, was set up in 2008 to support Scotland’s tourism industry. It is part funded by European Union coffers.

VisitScotland regional director Ken Massie said: "Aberdeen City and Shire are very much under-represented.

"This area boasts a fantastic tourism product and great potential for cross-selling and partnership working between businesses…I strongly encourage businesses throughout the region to apply."

Emma Wilson, the organisation’s Growth Fund advisor for the North of Scotland, said: "[Our] role is to help groups develop their marketing ideas and funding application, and provide general guidance throughout the lifetime of their project."  For more information visit: http://www.visitscotland.com/
