What a Friday feeling! Forget the buzz about George Clooney coming to Edinburgh, The Real Mary King’s Close has only gone and won a Scottish Thistle Award! If you flashback to November last year, you may remember that we scooped up two prestigious Lothian and Borders regional wins for Best Visitor Attraction and Best Heritage Tourism Experience.
Well last night, was the Thistle Awards finals for the whole of Scotland. Hosted at the EICC, it was a fantastic evening filled with the finest of Scottish tourism and hospitality.
VisitScotland’s Scottish Thistle Awards celebrate success, innovation, excellence, and best practice in Scotland’s tourism and hospitality industry. It’s even been said that they are the tourism industry’s answer to the Oscars.
We had the honour of picking up the VisitScotland Thistle Award of Best Heritage Tourism Experience for the whole of Scotland and a special commendation for Best Visitor Attraction.
It has been an incredible start to 2019 securing these titles and achieving such recognition. Saying thank you at this point doesn’t seem like enough to convey how grateful we are and the pride we feel in our site, it’s history and our team. Each day we open our doors, we have the privilege of bringing part of Scotland’s history and telling the real stories of the residents who spent their lives on Mary King’s Close.
We want to take this chance to express our gratitude to each guest that have come through our doors, followed our journey on social media and given us constant support over the years. We can’t wait to see what the year ahead holds and welcoming existing, and new customers alike to discover the Close.
