Scotland Hour started in August 2011, the brainchild of Dougie Baird, travel writer and entrepreneur. Originally a fun way to tell fellow travellers all about Scotland. It's now grown to become a great way to promote tourism in and around our country.
What is #ScotlandHour?
ScotlandHour is a monthly chat on Twitter. Covering subjects like 'where to stay', 'where to eat', 'what to do in Bonnie Scotland' etc. It's a chance for travellers to chat and plan a visit to Scotland.
When is #ScotlandHour?
ScotlandHour takes place on the last Wednesday of the month, 9pm – 10pm GMT on Twitter.
How do I get involved?
Simply tag your tweets with the hashtag #Scotlandhour and check the ScotlandHour Twitter profile for this month's subject area.
Example from scotlandhour.com:
"Q1: Where are your kids' favourite holiday places in Scotland and why? #ScotlandHour.
When you see the question, you reply, with your favourite, maybe:
A1: We love St Andrews because of the great beaches! #ScotlandHour
So, every 10 minutes a new question, and 10 minutes to put in your response before we all start answering the next question. From 9:50 pm the remaining 10 minutes of the hour will be available for everyone to add any comments, additional thoughts about the theme etc."
