Six overnight motorhome bays with electric hook-ups and a grey water disposal point have been given the green light at car park near Tarbert in the Outer Hebrides.
More than £85,000 has been allocated as part of the Urgha Aire project to help deal with the increase in campervans and motorhomes arriving on the island.
A total of £3 million has been awarded to 10 tourism projects across Scotland to improve visitor facilities and access and to promote low-carbon transport options.
The projects have all been recommended for approval – subject to conditions – to receive cash from round five of the Rural Tourism Infrastructure Fund (RTIF).
Managed by VisitScotland on behalf of the Scottish Government, the RTIF was created to improve the quality of the visitor experience in rural parts of Scotland that have faced pressure on their infrastructure due to an increase in visitor numbers.
It aims to reduce the impact of visitor numbers on local communities and facilities and create a more collaborative and sustainable approach to infrastructure provision and long-term maintenance of local facilities for the benefit of the communities.
Malcolm Roughead, chief executive of VisitScotland said: “Scotland’s natural and cultural heritage are central to our attractiveness as a destination.
“It is vital we protect them for the future.
“RTIF is an important part of Scotland becoming a sustainable tourism destination in line with the national tourism and economic strategy.
“Increasingly, visitors are becoming more mindful of their impacts on the world around them, both socially and environmentally.
“Being a responsible visitor and respecting and protecting our environment and communities makes for a better experience for everyone.
“RTIF projects will help ensure our visitor destinations remain sustainable for years to come.”
