First Marine Scotland survey of Recreation and Tourism around the Scottish Coasts and Seas.


After several months of preparation Marine Scotland is launching its first national survey of recreation and tourism around the Scottish coasts and seas!

Alongside the
National Marine Tourism Strategy, the survey will help to justify and guide future investment in facilities and infrastructure and will ensure that the importance of marine recreation and tourism businesses for the Scottish economy is properly recognised.

For the survey to produce meaningful results its important that as many; individuals, clubs and businesses participating in or servicing those who do participate in marine recreational activities as possible submit a response.

The survey is in two parts.
  • The first is aimed at individual and clubs who undertake recreation around the Scottish coastline and aims to find out which areas are important for recreation and why.  To complete this survey please click here.  Everyone who completes this survey will have an opportunity to enter a prize draw.

  • The second part of the survey is focused on businesses who are involved in marine recreation and tourism. To access the business survey please click here.
The survey, run by consultancy LUC, aims to provide data to support marine planning and is a partnership between Marine Scotland, Firth of Clyde Forum, Scottish Coastal Forum, The Crown Estate, Sail Scotland, Visit Scotland, Sport Scotland, WHAM, Royal Yachting Association, British Marine (Scotland) and Scottish Canals. The survey is available for completion online from August 1st 2015 until October 31st 2015.
