Latest Scottish Tourism Index results – August 2022

The latest set of results from our quarterly survey of Scots’ residents’ holiday opinions and behaviours – the Scottish Tourism Index are now available.

A representative sample of over 1,000 Scottish residents were interviewed to understand more about their holiday choices for 2022 – following on from the previous survey undertaken in April.  

Key highlights from the survey:

  • Almost three quarters of Scots are taking holidays this year (higher proportions than residents elsewhere in the UK based on data collected for us by Yonder Data Solutions)
  • Almost half of Scots are taking at least one holiday or break in Scotland this year with Edinburgh and the Highlands & islands the most popular destinations. 
  • For holidays in Scotland, around three quarters are planning the holiday at least a month in advance and over two thirds book their accommodation in advance. Self-catering accommodation continues to be most popular amongst Scots.
  • The impact of the cost of living crisis is clear – whilst the majority of Scots are taking holidays, the nature, type and destination of trip is being impacted to a major extent for 50% of the population.
