[Updated] Argyll and the Trossachs have been shortlisted in the Britain’s favourite holiday destination category in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2013.
With a reportedly very good summer season for the tourism sector here, there is evidence that more and more people are discovering the astonishingly rich resources of this part of Scotland.
This is thanks to the resourcefulness and the promotional expertise of Argyll and the Isles Tourism Cooperative under the leadership of its CEO, Mike Story with Carron Toibin.
When you add the qualities and commitment these two bring to their job to the resourcefulness of the local marketing groups in the Argyll and the Isles Strategic Tourism Partnership, the momentum is markedly moving Argyll forwards as a tourism destination.
The Countryfile Magazine nomination underlines that – now it’s over to the rest of us. We need to vote and to spread the word on the nomination and the voting aiming to carry Argyll and the Trossachs to the award.
Countryfile is, on merit, a programme of wide general interest – and to an audience that is a first class fit with what Argyll has to offer.
Now in their third year, the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards are a celebration of our countryside and its people.
The 2013 awards were launched in the August issue of BBC Countryfile Magazine, and feature 10 categories, from conservation projects and best heritage site to countryside writers and our finest nature reserves.
Now Countryside Magazine is asking the public to vote for their rural favourites.
Full details can be found on BBC Countryfile Magazine’s website here, or you can email your votes to firstname.lastname@example.org
