Hundreds of views from attractions and homes across Scotland have been shared online as part of the VisitScotland’s social media campaign #AWindowOnScotland.
From images of Jimmy Perez's ‘home’ in Shetland (from TV drama Shetland) to the lush landscape surrounding Morton Castle in Dumfries and Galloway, Scots have been sharing their own unique view of the world whilst they are staying home – reminding others of what awaits them when travel restrictions are changed.
Popular posts include images of the coastline at Oban, a video of lawn mowing at lighthouse cottages on Orkney, the sunset from Gourock and a video from a lodge on the banks of Loch Ness. Scottish residents are asked to take a picture of a view from their property and post it on social media using the hashtag #AWindowOnScotland and their location (i.e #Stirling, #Aberdeen, #Glasgow etc). The campaign has a clear stay at home message but allows everyone to show her or his part of Scotland to the world.
We know that in these uncertain times, planning future travel can be difficult. We are not taking tour bookings through 2020, but are hoping that the picture is different in 2021, and we can go back to sharing our part of Scotland with guests from around the world. Meanwhile, we are taking provisional day tour from Oban bookings for 2021 and after with no deposit and no cancellation fees. If you are thinking of visiting Scotland in the future when it is safe to do so, get in touch! We will be waiting in Oban with a warm welcome for you.
