Moray MP Douglas Ross was full of praise for a Moray holiday park after being given an access all areas tour of the location.
He was shown around Silver Sands in Lossiemouth and doscovered where all the additional investment in the park has been spent.
The site now includes new pet-friendly accommodation, upgrades in its electric and water hook-up points for touring guests as well as developing further locations for holiday home ownership.
The visit was organised as part of Scottish Tourism Month to celebrate the enormous contribution of the industry to Scotland’s economy which had more 166 million visitors in 2017 generating over £11.3 billion.
Silver Sands general manager, Michael Clappison said: “Obviously, tourism is important to the park, but it is also really important to the local community and economy here. We employ people from the local area providing much-needed jobs and we bring visitors to the area.
“We are very grateful that Douglas was able to visit the park today and see all the hard work that goes into preparing the park for the busy summer season ahead.”
Mr Ross added: “I’ve passed Silver Sands Holiday Park many times but I didn’t realise from the road the extensive area it covers and the huge number of sites available for static caravans and tourers.
“It was good to see the improvements made to the site in recent months and to hear about their additional plans for the future.
“It’s very clear that this is a significant local business employing many people at the site and investing in its future which is very positive for the local economy in Lossiemouth and the surrounding areas.”
