Scotland’s story is being told in a multitude of fascinating mediums and styles. Being a freelance heritage professional has allowed me to get involved with many different projects across the sector, both independently and alongside national and local organisations. With each one, I consider two things: will it help to educate people about Scotland in an innovative way, and will it be fun? The second one’s important – I do what I love, and I truly believe in every project I take on. Below are a few of the things I’ve done recently, with links so you can get involved too.

As part of the Scotlanders travel blogging group I cycled the northeast stopping at 5 places on the new Jacobite Trail. It’s the ‘Outlander effect’ in action! See #JacobiteTrailblazer across social media.
