Ayrshire Post - - Business -

A tourism or­gan­i­sa­tion and lux­ury cas­tle ho­tel are among the nom­i­nees rep­re­sent­ing Ayr­shire & Ar­ran on the short­list for the Scot­tish This­tle Awards re­gional fi­nals.

Des­ti­na­tion Ayr­shire and Glen­napp Cas­tle have made it through to the west re­gional fi­nal.

Six busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als will rep­re­sent the re­gion at the west re­gional fi­nal at Oran Mor in Glas­gow next month.

Des­ti­na­tion Ayr­shire and Gle­napp Cas­tle are jointly short­listed for the work­ing to­gether for tourism award.

Gil­lian McNeilly, di­rec­tor of sales at Trump Turn­berry, is short­listed in the re­gional am­bas­sador cat­e­gory.

Jules Mat­teoni of Prest­wick Air­port is short­listed in the tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity hero cat­e­gory.

Trump Turn­berry also makes the most hos­pitable ho­tel cat­e­gory.

More than 640 en­tries were sub­mit­ted for this year’s awards, in­clud­ing more than 1000 nom­i­na­tions from mem­bers of the pub­lic.

Re­becca Brooks, chair of the Scot­tish This­tle Awards in­dus­try panel, said: “We have once again been de­lighted by this year’s re­sponse to the awards.

“These re­wards aim to shine the spot­light on the busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als who have shown real com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion to tourism in Scot­land.

“Tourism is more than a hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ence. It is the heart­beat of the Scot­tish econ­omy and touches ev­ery com­mu­nity, gen­er­at­ing in­come, jobs and so­cial change.”
