There's Value in Your
‘SkyeConnect recently commissioned a study by the Moffat Centre into the economic impact of Tourism on the Isle of Skye. The study found our island generated in excess of £260m in revenue in 2019. An incredible amount.
In order for our island to truly realise the potential of this economic clout we need individuals, businesses and communities to come together. We won’t all agree on everything, but can recognise we all want to see Skye thrive.
By joining the SkyeConnect Community not only will you enjoy the benefits listed below, but you can be part of strengthening Skye’s influence to reflect our island’s local and national contribution.’
