FAQ's - your questions answered
Where is Southern Scotland?
Exactly! For a lot of people, Southern Scotland disappears after Gretna and then suddenly re-emerges around Edinburgh or Glasgow. We’ve heard a range of questions and statements about Southern Scotland including:
Is Visitsouthernscotland.co.uk not just another tourism website?
Visitsouthernscotland.co.uk has never just been about a website! Based on an awareness that Southern Scotland, although the most accessible region, has yet to see the visitor numbers recorded in other parts of Scotland the portal was set up to promote all tourism related businesses; to give everyone a simple way forward of opening up Southern Scotland, in order to market their products to the rest of the world.
We cover our costs which mean there are charges, yet we also value our work and above all pursue absolute customer satisfaction.Visitsouthernscotland.co.uk is a commercial business, but we work with community councils, voluntary organisations and local services to collate a useful body of information on the website … and we don’t charge them a penny! In fact, you’re welcome to send us any information you like about Southern Scotland and we’ll find a place for it on our website!
If you’re also a commercial business, then we charge you to advertise on our portal. Our charges are based on actual experience in the hospitality industry and what is considered to be a reasonable price to promote your business on the internet. We are very aware that many businesses have been burnt by internet marketing scams, but we are genuine people in a genuine business offering a genuine service to get you bookings.
Why doesn’t everyone just build their own website?
Because websites are expensive, they’re awkward to maintain, they need computers which need looking after and they require lots of effort (at least initially)
Because people, particularly with regard to internet research, don’t want to spend hours searching individual sites. They want lots of information, under one umbrella, that’s clear, accurate and easy to access
Because by utilising sites such as Visitsouthernscotland.co.uk, everybody saves money and we project manage either part, or all or your internet marketing
Because individual websites will always have a smaller budget than bigger portals. We can put the bells and whistles on our site and make them available to everyone
Every measure has also been put in place to make Visitsouthernscotland.co.uk a secure site, so all data, booking information and payment details are protected
Who are you to take on the job of promoting Southern Scotland?
We’re just admirers of Southern Scotland, wanting to combine the necessity and opportunity of promoting Dumfries and Galloway, the Scottish Borders and Ayshire & Arran. We live in the area, we like it here and want to encourage a greater number of visitors to build a sustainable future for the region.
