More than 70 representatives of 50 tourism-related businesses attended an event staged by East Neuk Local Tourism Association.

The level of interest in the information and brochure exchange at Anstruther’s Scottish Fisheries Museum last Tuesday was a clear sign of the strength of the tourist industry in north east Fife and its contribution to the economy, according to the association.

The event gave people from businesses as diverse as accommodation providers, restaurants, golf clubs and festivals, as well tourism development and town improvement associations, the chance to meet.

It also provided a chance to extend an invitation to business open days being jointly organised by Kellie Castle and the museum on April 1-2, and for the audience to find out about a discount voucher programme which earns commission.

“As the spring tourism season in the East Neuk picks up speed in the next few months, the information night encouraged businesses to learn about and support each other,” said association chairman Andy Peddie. “Such efforts can only benefit the businesses involved and strengthen the tourism sector in the East Neuk and Fife overall.”

The evening was also supported by award-winning Ardross Farm Shop, which provided the refreshments.
