The Oban Times - - News -

THE chair­man of Ar­gyll and the Isles Tourism Co- op­er­a­tive (AITC) has con­grat­u­lated tourism busi­nesses across the re­gion who were an­nounced as re­gional fi­nal­ists for this year’s Scot­tish This­tle Awards, last Fri­day.

Busi­nesses in Ar­gyll and the Isles, cov­ered by the High­lands and Is­lands re­gion, have been se­lected as fi­nal­ists in seven of the 14 cat­e­gories.

The Tiree Wave Clas­sic and Mull of Kin­tyre Half Marathon and 10K Race, which cel­e­brated its 10th birth­day in May, are in the Best Sport­ing Event cat­e­gory.

And Coil­l­abus Lodges on Is­lay and Tor­ris­dale Castle Es­tate in Car­radale will bat­tle it out in the Best Hol­i­day Ac­com­mo­da­tion sec­tion.

Gavin Dick, chair­man of AITC, said: ‘I’m de­lighted to see so many Ar­gyll and the Isles tourism busi­nesses go­ing for­ward to the re­gional fi­nals.

‘We know we have a great prod­uct and it’s en­cour­ag­ing to see this recog­nised by the tourism in­dus­try.

‘It’s a priv­i­lege to be nom­i­nated and I’m de­lighted for ev­ery­one who has reached this stage. We’ll look for­ward to the an­nounce­ment of the re­gional win­ners in Novem­ber.’
