SNH Commissioned Report 368 - The natural heritage as an economic driver - protected areas case studies

This research concerns itself with the impact protected areas have on the local business community, investigating economic contribution as well as exploring perceptions of the natural heritage. Four case study areas were chosen for investigation: Forvie NNR, St Abb's Head NNR, Beinn Eighe NNR, and Loch Lomond NNR. Findings from different sources were triangulated to present an overall picture of the reserves' relationships with local businesses: NNR visitor research, reserve expenditure, and local business surveys.
