"SkyeConnect continues to do a tremendous job at elevating the issues experienced by tourism business on the island by engaging with the STA both directly and via representation on the recently established STA Destination Forum, plus with politicians and the media through their communications and weekly podcast. A great example of a destination management organisation with its finger on the button."
