FAM trip and gala dinner
We were fortunate to be able to showcase the area to some of the UK’s leading inbound tour operators this month, giving them a glimpse into our stunning scenery and fascinating heritage, as well as a chance to experience some of the region’s best outdoor activities. And let’s not forget about the very best of our natural larder which was very well received!
12 operators joined us including representatives from Kuoni, Hotels & More, Jac travel and Cashel Travel, with the group hosted by a number of local businesses including Abbotsford, Ridelines, The Papermill and Roxburghe Shooting School.
The trip culminated in our first Gala dinner which took place at Duns Castle. Over 20 tourism professionals joined the group to enjoy a dinner by The Orde Food Company, who prepared a truly exceptional meal paired with wines from the castle’s cellar.
