The local authority are compiling a report entitled 'The North Coast Tourism Assessment Study', which they believe could generate "growth opportunities that will help guide future decision-making and development of the area's tourism economy over the next 3-5 years".

NAC say that tourism across the region brings some £123.65 million into the local economy, with 1,125,300 tourists visiting the area, while tourism in the North Coast area, including Cumbrae, brings in £23.61 million and attracts some 237,860 tourists.
