56 Degree Insight – Scottish Tourism Index Webinar
3rd August 1pm

  • COVID-19 lockdown began on 23rd March in Scotland.  Now, almost four months on, and the Scottish tourism industry made its first tentative steps to re-opening on the 15th of July. Over these last 15 weeks, many of us have been thinking about how the pandemic has made us feel about travel generally and our 2020 holiday plans in particular – and we were keen to track how the Scottish resident adult population’s views and opinions have moved over this period of lockdown.
  • As a result, in early May, 56 Degree Insight launched a new survey designed to monitor the tourism and leisure desires and concerns of the Scottish population – The Scottish Tourism Index.  Where would they want to go first when conditions allow, and what will they take into account when planning that trip?  The first wave of research was undertaken in the first week of May and repeated again at the start of June.
  • The week before re-opening, in early July, we went back out to ask Scots how they now felt about holidays and travel given that it would very soon be possible again.  WE asked broad questions around foreign travel, self-quarantine lifting and the appeal of key overseas destinations, but the main focus was on the Scottish tourism industry and the potential for ‘staycations’.  How many were thinking about, planning or had already booked such trips – where and when?  And what were their views on social distancing – especially the 2m vs 1m debate.  Importantly, this time we also sought a community angle – how would Scots feel about welcoming visitors to their own communities?
