English tourists are cancelling holidays to Scotland because they fear “ill feeling” towards them after the referendum, it emerged today.
Travel firms north of the border say holiday-makers have contacted them saying they don’t want to go to Scotland whatever the result of the vote.
It was also claimed other English travellers have also cancelled planned breaks because they say they no longer want to support Scotland if it becomes independent.
Amber Swinton, property manager at Unique Cottages, said: “We have had numerous phone calls from customers stating that if we do become independent then they will no longer we willing to support Scotland and won’t be returning for a holiday.
“But of more concern is that people are cancelling holidays they had booked for next year irrelevant of the outcome of the vote.”
She said her company usually had a number of repeat customers from England who booked their Scottish summer holidays immediately after returning from their last one, who had not done so this year.
