FAM Trips

We have the opportunity to host 3 FAM Trips each year as part of our 2 year plan. The FAM trips have been created for people who run their own business or work as front line staff in tourism in the Scottish Borders and Midlothian. Last year's FAM trips for tourism businesses in the regions were a huge success and we have seen some fantastic collaboration and new products on the back of it.

This is an excellent FREE opportunity.  The day will allow you to meet and network with fellow tourism providers from the Midlothian and the Borders and to experience some of the fantastic offerings we have to enhance your product knowledge of what is available on your doorstep, which in turn is a great opportunity for tourism businesses to refer business to each other and develop working relationships going forward in addition to telling all your guests about these great places to visit. 

 The itinerary is currently being developed and is set to be full of amazing locations, venues, providers and services in the tourism industry across Midlothian with a focus on activities...which include:

- Dobbie’s

- Cousland Smiddy 

- Melville Golf Centre, Range & Shop

- Dalkeith Country Park & Restoration Yard

- Butterfly & Insect World 

- Delicious local food & drink

* The final itinerary will be communicated out upon registration

We  are currently working on an exciting full day’s programme. It is a busy itinerary as we are keen to showcase as many tourism businesses in this area, which will give you a true flavour of this part of the Scotland.

Please note you MUST work in tourism to attend this educational FAM trip.
