September #HITATogether

HITA – The Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards are renowned as the annual celebration of excellence across the local tourism industry and this month we celebrate the organisations that are in place to support their local communities!

We are shining the #HITAHero light on the incredible tourism organisations that work so hard to promote all of the wonderful destinations and their businesses in the Highlands and Islands. Some have Instagram, others have Facebook and most have a great resourceful website with lots of top tips about their area!
