Shop Local – November 2020

We’ve said it before but it’s no less true, still, in November. 2020 has been a challenging year. We’ve continued to hold #ScotlandHour as a means: for all of us to come together in support of one another, in celebration of what makes our beloved Scotland so great and in continued desire to always be an active part in promotion of tourism in Scotland which employs and benefits so many of us. As well as those we know and love in the best, and even in the worst, of times. We truly have something special in Scotland that isn’t found elsewhere, don’t ya think?

This year in adhering to our mission as stated above we have had as topics: health and wellbeing, out and about, celebration, autumn, and our wonderful beverage industries – gin, whisky, and beer and finally photographs of Scotland. This month we want to focus on telling the stories of supporting local shops that are online or in person and locally made Scottish products to support those makers and creators and small businesses that make Scotland great. So shout out those you know during the chat. Especially if they have an online store.

We have as our sponsors this month: @Isle20Shop and @VisitScotNews and in addition to #ScotlandHour we will also be using #ScotlandLovesLocal
