Overview

Prior to this group’s formation information of gardens was piecemeal and large areas of Scotland had no promotion of gardens at all – Borders, Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.  Interested visitors rely on finding relevant fliers/publicity. With the demise of VisitScotland’s TICs it is increasingly difficult to get information and advice.  The Leader Project supports Discover Scottish Gardens during the critical years of development and growth and will support:

  • Employment of a Business Development Officer
  • Commissioning of Professional photography
  • Design, printing and distribution of an A1 fold-out map which will greatly improve the information supplied to tourists and visitors and enable visitors to plan visits.
