The Beauty of Scotland

To mark the 1 year anniversary of ItinerWord relocating its creative travel copywriting service from London to Glasgow, we thought there’s no better way to celebrate this huge event in the company’s history than with a snapshot look at the multi-layered magnificence of Scotland, an incredible country to live and work in. The truth is, there are so many highlights of Scotland, so many unique characteristics, landscapes, cultures and iconic native cuisine that you’ll never properly capture it all in one go. But, nonetheless, here’s ItinerWord’s take on the beauty of Scotland; it may sound a little biased, but it’s still all true!

One of the best things about being in the travel copywriting business is that our lucky team here at ItinerWord get to create stories, describe emotions and walk our readers through the most incredible travel experiences.

Picture promising your partner a romantic meal for two, yet the food arrives raw and the waiters are poorly dressed. That long-awaited concert arrives and they haven’t bothered to do a sound check, so you have to leave early… you get the idea! Continue reading
