Holidays firm Barrhead Travel has taken the wraps off its new branch at Edinburgh Airport.

The opening of the site, along with a further branch on the city’s Hanover Street, brings the total number of Barrhead outlets in the Scottish capital to six.

Barrhead, founded in 1975, has created 20 jobs with the two new Edinburgh branches, which come after an investment of almost £1.5 million in the business over the past year. The firm now employs about 850 staff across 56 locations.

“We can only do this by attracting, retaining and growing the best people in the industry.”
