Sustainable tourism development: The case of Scotland

Sathiendrakumar, R. (1998) Sustainable tourism development: The case of Scotland. The International Journal of Environmental Education and Information, 17 (4). pp. 381-396.

Abstract

The long-term viability of the tourism industry in any country is dependent on the maintenance of natural, cultural and historical attractions. This paper discusses how sustainable tourism could be achieved in Scotland - that is, maintaining a constant stock of tourism artefacts, maximising tourism services from these and minimising the energy level necessary to maintain that constant stock. This paper demonstrates that sustainable tourism in Scotland is an activity which not only conserves natural and cultural resources but also promotes a permanent capacity to generate income and employment. Finally, the paper considers the important aspect of monitoring sustainable development vis-ã-vis the limits of acceptable change.
