THE EXPERIENCE in Hillington Park has been nominated for ‘Best Visitor Destination’ at the prestigious Scottish Thistle Awards1. The Renfrewshire venue will compete with other tourist hotspots from across the West of Scotland with the winner being announced at a glitzy ceremony in Glasgow in November.

Winners in each of the categories will then be put forward for a national award next year.

The Experience was opened in 2014 and is home to Scotland’s only electric karting track. It has already been awarded 5 stars as a visitor destination already by Visit Scotland as well as a Taste our Best Award for The Academy Restaurant.




Lynsey McLean, General Manager at The Experience, said: “It is a great privilege to be recognised by tourism bosses in this way. We work really hard as a team to make sure our visitors get the best service possible.

“Whether they are here to enjoy the electric go-karting, get something to eat at in the Academy Restaurant or attending a conference, our staff are the key to our success.”

Described as the Oscars of the tourism industry2, the Scottish Thistle Awards have been running for over 20 years. They recognise the excellence in a growing tourist market estimated to be worth over £11Bn to the Scottish economy per year.
