Go Rural have been working extremely hard to increase the profile of agritourism in Scotland with consumers, industry and politicians. This has involved campaigning strongly for more recognition for the sector and an understanding of what the sector contributes to rural communities and the economy as a whole.

22nd April 2015
In the Year of Food and Drink Scotland 2015, we wanted to showcase what a great job our Agritourism farmers are doing in producing top quality food and drink. The aim of the Year is to highlight and promote Scotland's world-leading natural larder and that Scotland is a destination for food and drink.
We have designed The Scottish Agritourism Map listing Scotland's quality tourism and leisure businesses based on farms, estates and crofts with a guide to the top Foodie Farmers showcasing the quality food they produce and sell.
