Greetings from the Black Isle Tourism Team!
Formed from an initial get-together in November 2014, BITT is a subgroup of the Black Isle Partnership. BITT aims to encourage and enable businesses, organisations and individuals on and around the Black Isle who have an interest in tourism to work together. We aim to improve the visitor experience here and to raise the profile of the area. So far we've produced the area's first visitor map, held several busy networking and information events, worked with the North Coast 500 and Visit Scotland teams to improve the profile of the Black Isle on their main visitor sites and to raise issues of interest to our membersworked with Plexus Media in Cromarty to update the key site www.black-isle.info, supported funding applications, worked with Highland Council on the improvements at Chanonry Point, set up new Fb pages Discover the Black Isle and Black Isle Nature, and carried out various other practical tasks.
The Black Isle Partnership aims to support and strengthen the area through social, environmental and economic activity. In particular BIP promotes community enterprises and companies with similar aims. BITT is grateful to BIP for their support. For more information about BIP, contact BIP Roy Sinclair, Company Secretary, on firstname.lastname@example.org
We are funded by short term grants for specific purposes, eg printing the Black Isle Visitor Map and producing the Feasibility Study for the Discover the Black Isle initiative. Staff time has come from from a number of volunteers from the sector locally and via Lizbeth Collie's post as Destination Development Officer at Black Isle Bicycles, funded by the Coastal Communities Fund.
