The following paper is a sample from D. Brian White’s Transforming Destinations course at Royal Roads University.  The course examines the social, economic, infrastructure, stakeholder and political aspects of a community and region relative to the interest in creating a sustainable tourism destination, often in the form of a Destination Management Organization (DMO) or community.

The final assignment examined how tourism destinations build competitive advantage and sustainable management.  I chose to examine destination development in Scotland’s heritage and cultural tourism field.
