THE ARRAN BANNER

TWENTY YEARS AGO

Saturday 8 February, 1997

Arran Tourist Board had, over the years, become a body which spoke with authority for Arran. Then a rationalisation of tourist boards was decreed and it was feared it may become one tiny part of a South West Scotland board. It was considered something of a victory when an Ayrshire and Arran board was allowed, but many felt it would cease to have much meaning for Arran. Local control of its flagship - the accommodation register - has just been released and many members are not happy with it. Nearly half the entries are incorrect as no-one on Arran checked the facts.
