2021-12-02T12:55:51+00:00

Wave of the future – ‘Water Wellness’ in Scotland Scotland could be set to ride the wave of a growing wellness trend, according to VisitScotland.

The national tourism organisation believes that due to its many lochs, rivers, canals and coastlines, Scotland is ideally placed to become one of the hottest destinations to embrace this movement.

Now the need has just increased for these services to be more accessible online to populations across a territory.
