North East 250 Ltd is a privately funded company whose primary aim is to grow the brand, its reach and its positive impact on tourism in the North East of Scotland by creating enhanced economic impacts for the communities in the North East.

North East 250 is a trademarked brand. For continued investment in the marketing, audience reach and future success of the North East 250 route, it is essential that we can monetise the brand through licence agreements. Our Business, Supporters and Partner members already enjoy the use of the brand as part of their membership and association with us and this is something that we would like to grow. If you have a goods or services business, and would like to use the North East 250 brand, we are here to give you advice and guidance and lead you through our licensing process.

It is important to understand that it is forbidden to use the registered trademarks of North East 250 without permission. If you are currently doing so, we will be in touch to offer you opportunities to use the brand under license or, failing that, to advise that you will be required to stop using these brands. Unauthorised use does not create reinvestment in the development and audience reach of the route.
We always prefer to work with others to ensure that as many businesses as possible are able to gain from the brand collateral we have created. In order to boost the tourism economy and help to show that the North East is a sustainable place to live, work and grow your business, we must protect the brand.

For more information on how to use the North Coast 250 brand under license, please contact info@northeast250.com.
