Scotland - Articles


Here at Welcome to Scotland we like nothing better than interacting with you - yes you! - so we want to get you more involved in what we do. We want to know what you love about Scotland, even some of the things you are not so keen on. We’d love to see your photos and for you to share some great stories, tips and wee gems. That is why we have started our #ThemeWeeks.

We now run these #ThemeWeeks regularly on both our Facebook and Twitter accounts, with links right into our main website. We announce a topic and get you thinking and those creative juices flowing. Then on Monday morning away we go for seven fun and info filled days swirling around the topic. On our main site you will find over 19,000 things to see and do in Scotland, plus where to eat and stay and much, much more. You’ll also find links to downloading our ace free App for iPhone and Android devices.

#ThemeWeeks Topics

The topics of our #ThemeWeeks are diverse. And we are open to suggestions too so if there is something that you are really keen on then please do get in touch and we will look seriously at your idea. Who knows, your very own #ThemeWeek idea might soon be up and running on our Facebook and Twitter accounts!

Previous theme weeks have focussed on topics such as #ScotFoodWeek, #PerthshireWeek and #GlasgowWeek. The former is a regular now, which we run twice a year so look out for this chance to really go to town on Scotland’s superb fresh produce and the ace places around the country to savour it. A #ThemeWeek really allows our audience to learn more about places, as well as local businesses to get over to a very wide audience exactly what they do and new developments they want to share with our rapidly expanding world. It is all about sharing knowledge and providing everyone with really useful insider tips.

How Do I get Involved in a #ThemeWeek?

Getting involved in one of our #Themeweek events could not be any easier. Just ‘Like’ us on Facebook (you can do that here) or follow us on Twitter (you can do that here). Then you can join in. With Facebook you can view our topic posts, which might be anything from questions about the #ThemeWeek topics or gorgeous photos on the theme. Then you can also engage further by posting anything to our wall, whether it is a question or stunning photos of your own.

On Twitter interacting with the #ThemeWeek could also not be any more simple. When you see a tweet that includes the relevant #ThemeWeek hashtag you can just reply to it or, even better, write a whole new tweet addressed to @welcomescotland that includes the relevant #ThemeWeek hashtag.

We make an effort to get back to as many Facebook posts and Twitter tweets as possible – we really appreciate the fact that you choose to engage with us and want you to keep doing it!

So What Are you Waiting For?

Now you know exactly what our #ThemeWeek concept is all about and how easy it is to get in there what are you waiting for? Don’t be scared. Don’t be shy. Just log on to the internet now, whether it’s on a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device and get cracking by joining one of our #Themeweek events. We look forward to meeting you. Welcome to Scotland!
