What with a virtual-reality experience inside Van Gogh’s art world, following a drone through the Inverness skyline and tweeting my heart out for a bottle of Benromach (I didn’t win), it’s been quite a week. Life as a rural business owner; I thought it would be quieter.
In amongst all the action, there were a couple of things I wanted to share. Abbey from Google’s Digital Garage played this video at Discover Digital 2016:
Genius. Especially all the goods flying through the ‘normal’ checkout in the background…
For those of us on Twitter and Instagram:
I like the #scotspirit campaign. It’s simple, snappy and so easy to get on board with. Visit Scotland have reported an overwhelming response so far (did I hear 40 000 uploads?). Congratulations!
#scotspirit is also a brilliant opportunity for rural businesses to engage with a very wide audience; look at this stunning photo from Balblair Cottages. Don’t you want to see more?

Talking of hashtags, #dram16 have announced an additional whisky festival to take place in Speyside this autumn, focussing on a younger demographic. Does life get any better?
Which hashtags are you using to reach a wider audience? pic.twitter.com/0NIeklBYSG

On that (whisky) note, wishing you a long and happy Easter weekend.
