Highland councillors approved the findings of a public consultation supporting the introduction of a Highland Transient Visitor Levy and committed to further work to develop an optimal scheme for Highland.
The results of more than 6600 responses gathered through online and face-to-face surveys, alongside a pre-consultation with the tourism industry and written submissions received from representatives from the tourism industry and local communities were considered by councillors.
Support for a Highland Transient Visitor Levy (TVL) scheme was evidenced in the 5,622 responses to the Council’s online questionnaire for businesses, residents and visitors, and the 950 face-to-face visitor surveys.
Multi award-winning band, Mànran, will play Skye Gathering Hall on Wednesday 1 January, bringing their lively sets to audiences in Portree this festive season.
Mànran will play Portree hot off the back of performing as part of BBC Alba’s Hogmanay Show, Cèilidh Na Bliadhn’ Ùire, aired live on the channel this New Year.
2020 will mark ten years at the heart of the Scottish Traditional music scene for the folk group. Having been in high demand as a live act across the world with shows in over 30 countries, Mànran are looking forward to playing to Portree audiences in January.
