Discover Scotland’s Tay Country


We are delighted to invite our tour operator members to Discover Scotland’s Tay Country on Sunday 22 September – Tuesday 24 September, upcoming in our series of Discover Workshops.

Scotland’s Tay Country was the most talked about UK destination of 2018, when the first V&A museum anywhere in the world outside London opened in September in Dundee.
In less than 5 hours by train, 2 hours by plane from London, visitors can look forward to experiencing a stimulating clash of culture meets countryside, from buzzing cultural cities to revitalising beautiful beaches and serene silent glens.
Taking in the areas of Perthshire, Fife, Angus and Dundee, offering everything from an inspiring visit to V&A Dundee, a coastal tour through the fishing harbours of East Neuk of Fife, a walk through the towering forest landscapes of Perthshire or soaking up a sense of the past at Glamis Castle, every corner of this region is guaranteed to stir your emotions.

During the event, UKinbound will run a half-day workshop offering pre-scheduled B2B meetings providing the opportunity to develop business relationships with local suppliers. There will also be an opportunity to participate in fam trips showcasing Scotland’s Tay Country.
