Tourism boost for south-west Scotland

Scottish Tourism Minister Fergus Ewing is visiting a holiday park in the south-west of Scotland to find out how busy the region has been this summer.

Loch Ken Holiday Park, near Castle Douglas, has seen an increase in visitor numbers with the help of recent investment.

The area has enjoyed a busier year than usual with visitors coming from both sides of the Border as well as mainland Europe.

A national tourism report has shown a 21% rise in visitors to outdoor attractions across south-west Scotland.
