Apply here >

If you are planning to be open during the winter, then do consider applying for this grant funding which is specifically aimed at Outdoor and Wildlife Experiences and Visitor Attractions to provide a boost to these businesses through the winter months.

Successful applicants will be able to offer up to 50% off per ticket up to the value of £20 per person between November and February 2022.

VisitScotland will provide you with free assets to use throughout the campaign which will help with your own marketing. You can also choose to be flexible with regards to which days or weeks you decide to run the promotion within the promotional period.

If your offer is only valid certain dates, you should make that clear on your web listing.

Please see the full guidance notes here >

Participating businesses must:

  • have a place of business in Scotland
  • charge paid admission to customers for the relevant visitor attraction / experience
  • be open for business during the promotional period (i.e. 4 November 2021 to 18 February 2022)
  • have availability during that promotional period
  • be signed-up to the COVID-19 industry standard ‘We’re Good to Go’ or equivalent
  • sign up for a free web listing

If you operate more than one eligible attraction / experience, you can submit an application form for each attraction / experience. There will be a section in the form which allows you to set out whether the 5 attraction / experience forms part of a wider group of companies which operate multiple attractions / experiences or is one of multiple operated by the same entity. Where an entity either operates multiple attractions / experiences or where a group of entities operates multiple attractions / experiences, this will be taken into account when determining the final grant award, as explained further within this Guidance.
