BBC 2’s Landward calls on Moffat Centre experts

Professor John Lennon, Director of the Moffat Centre for Travel and Tourism Business Development at Glasgow Caledonian University, has been interviewed by BBC Scotland presenter Dougie Vipond for rural issues programme Landward.

The interview will be included in Landward on BBC Two Scotland at 7pm on the 11th December 2009.

Professor Lennon was asked to provide his views due to the Moffat Centre’s expertise on tourism as an economic driver for Scotland.

In this episode of Landward, former Deacon Blue drummer-turned-TV presenter Dougie Vipond travels to Loch Rannoch to hear about plans for the multi-millionaires’ playground on the Dall Estate.


Dougie also speaks to opponents of the development who fear it will destroy the natural beauty of the area. The project has caused great debate in Scotland and groups including The Woodland Trust and the RSPB have objected to the development.

The Moffat Centre has carried out travel and tourism projects internationally and works with a variety of stakeholders, from public to private sector, and from multinationals to SMEs. The Centre can help clients with training, marketing, feasibility studies, strategy and business development.

The Moffat Centre is just one of Glasgow Caledonian University’s Centres of Expertise which can help unlock the potential for your business via the Applied Knowledge Exchange.
