Have you ever taken a golf trip? How about one to the British Isles, or Scotland for one? What you may not know is that a tremendous amount of planning and efforts go into the creation (or at least should) of such golfing experiences, much of which is in the back of the house and behind the scenes. Here’s an inside look at a recent event in Scotland that PerryGolf attended.

VisitScotland expo 2014

PerryGolf recently attended the VisitScotland expo in Glasgow, Scotland. VisitScotland expo is Scotland’s premier business to business travel trade event and was held this year 2nd-3rd April 2014. The expo offers the perfect opportunity for all companies with a Scottish tourism product to showcase their products and services to potential buyers. It is open to buyers from all sectors of the industry and all corners of the globe.

St Kilda

A new service for the more adventurous client wanting to visit the wonderful St Kilda, in the most north westerly waters of Scotland.  St Kilda, owned and managed by The National Trust for Scotland, has become one of only two-dozen global locations to be awarded World Heritage Status for both natural and cultural significance. The remote Hebridean Islands share this honour with natural and cultural wonders such as the Historic Sanctuary of Machu Picchu in Peru, Mount Athos in Greece, and the Ukhahlamba/Drakensberg Park in South Africa.
