Here's what some of our members think:

"Mill of Nethermill Holidays highly recommends the Banffshire Coast Tourism Partnership (BCTP); we consider BCTP to be an invaluable tool for our business.  BCTP has not only raised the awareness of this beautiful coastline, but they have helped to raise the quality of the business offering in this area.  BCTP has provided us with important workshops and networking events to help keep our self-catering business current with our ever-changing tourism industry.  Our guests have shared with us that the Banffshire Coast website has helped them plan what they were going to do on holiday, and the Walking leaflets are a huge success with all our visitors."  Bill and Lynn Pitt, Mill of Nethermill Holidays by Pennan

"As a member of the Banffshire Coast Tourism Partnership, one of the many benefits Macduff Marine Aquarium has enjoyed this year has been the innovative promotional campaigns run by the organisation which highlight our coastline’s marine wildlife – who could have predicted that the news article BCTP arranged about the Troup Head gannets could spark interest from the BBC and a piece about the aquarium and the gannet cam on BBC Landward? Taking part in other BCTP initiatives, such as the Seaside in the City event in Glasgow, also allows us to reach audiences that we wouldn’t get to on our own. The group do an amazing amount of work on everyone’s behalf and membership is of great value to us."  Claire Matthews, Macduff Marine Aquarium

“I have been a member for many years now and find that BCTP has been really good for marketing my business both to locals and visitors alike. Their leaflets are regularly quoted as the reason why a number of visitors come to visit me and I think it’s really important that businesses that aren’t necessarily seen as essential to tourism are part of the tourist experience of the area.”  Fiona Duckett, Watergaw Ceramics

The annual membership fee is £75.00.
