SRCDT is a Scottish Charitable Trust, formed in November 1998 following various committee meetings in the Kirkmaiden and Stoneykirk communities over a period of one and a half years.
The aims of the Trust are:
Our vision for the future of the South Rhins is of a community with a healthy economy, based on agriculture and tourism, with a healthy, thriving and enterprising population. The area will have created a strong identity for itself – building on its produce, heritage, culture, environment and location – and its already strong community spirit. The development of tourism for the South Rhins has been a major interest. Here the aim is to increase awareness of the area as a tourist destination, increase numbers of visitors and their length of stay. This will support local businesses, help sustain local tourism jobs, encourage development of new tourist enterprises and help generate further jobs in existing and new enterprises.
We hope you enjoy your stay.
Funding has come from the European Regional Fund, Scottish National Heritage, Dumfries & Galloway Council and Scottish Enterprise Dumfries & Galloway.
