Support Funding for Marine & Outdoor Tourism Update 

Applications from this fund have now closed.

Applicants will hear soon whether or not they have been successful. There will be the opportunity to appeal if you are unsuccessful.

In response to our appeal to the Scottish Government, the Outdoor and Marine fund has been increased from £2.5 million to £4 million. However, Wild Scotland and Sail Scotland continue to lobby hard on behalf on the sector in recognition that this fund is not enough and we are looking at further support to ensure survival of businesses.

The following has been highlighted and we look forward to meeting with the Cabinet Secretary, Fergus Ewing in a couple of weeks to discuss further:

  • Underfunded grant scheme
  • Parity with other sectors
  • Inequality of funding support
  • Catastrophic market failure
  • Critical short season
