We struck gold at the Scottish Thistle Awards regional finals for Central, Fife & Tayside, where The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum won Best Visitor Attraction!
The Scottish Thistle Awards, now in their 27th year, help shine the spotlight on individuals and businesses going above and beyond to create a destination and visitor experience worth talking about amongst our valuable tourism industry. They champion the very best of the Scottish tourism industry, celebrating innovation, success and excellence in the sector.
2019 saw almost 600 entries submitted, including more than 1,000 nominations from members of the public keen to give hotels, restaurants, B&Bs, visitor attractions and individuals the opportunity to earn the recognition they deserve from their own industry peers.
Billy Gartley, Head of Cultural Services at Leisure & Culture Dundee said
"We are absolutely delighted to win this award as we have been working hard to make The McManus even more appealing to visitors. We are also excited to play our part in the region's tourism success and can't wait to welcome visitors from home and abroad to our beautiful galleries."
The McManus now joins other regional winners who have earned their place at the prestigious National Final in March, where we will join the country’s tourism elite to be honoured with the highest accolade in the Scottish hospitality and tourism sector.
