Meet the Business: Greyhope Bay
8 July 2022
Following the feedback we received from our industry newsletter survey conducted earlier this year, we are introducing a monthly 'Meet the business' feature. This responds to the request to share interviews with local tourism and hospitality businesses to get closer to what they are doing and learn from best practice.
We have started with Fiona McIntyre, the Managing Director and Founder of Greyhope Bay. Fiona founded Greyhope Bay in late 2015 with the ambition to connect and engage communities with the marine wildlife, environment and heritage on Aberdeen's doorstep. Fast forward to today and the Greyhope Bay Centre is now a reality, having opened its doors for the first time in early April. Made out of converted shipping containers and operating completely off-grid, the eco-friendly centre offers spectacular views of the coast and a fantastic opportunity to view dolphins playing in the bay. During the interview, Fiona shared some of the ups and downs she faced during the course of the project, as well as the importance of community engagement and storytelling to bringing Greyhope Bay to life.
If you have an interesting story to tell about your business and would be interested in sharing this in a future 'Meet the business' interview, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
