Celebrate Scotland's Wildlife for September Scotlandhour

The monthly Scottish tourism Twitter chat #scotlandhour is celebrating Scotland's wildlife for its September chat on Wednesday 25th September from 9-10pm GMT.

Do you or does your business promote Scotland's wildlife? Do you offer a tourism experience which includes wildlife spotting for your visitors?

Perhaps you are interested in wildlife and looking for suggestions of places to find wildlife, or activities to help you learn more about it in and around Loch Lomond and the Clyde Sea Lochs? If so, joining in the #scotlandhour chat is a great way to pick up tips, chat with other Scottish tourism businesses and share information about what you do with the #scotlandhour community.

The monthly Twitter chat follows a set formula of around 5 or 6 questions which are often crowd-sourced and published approximately one week in advance of the scheduled Twitter chat – look out for them on the Scotlandhour website or on the #scotlandhour Facebook page.

The hosts of #ScotlandHour: @BairdTravels (founder, Dougie), @HIEHamilton @AileenLamb, @SusanMcNaughton, @lesleyjudge and @FionaDrane tweet out a series of 5 questions: at 9:00 pm, 9:10 pm, 9:20 pm, 9:30 pm, 9:40 pm.

Questions are in the format (for example):

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 Loch Lomond because of the great scenery! #ScotlandHour

So, every 10 minutes a new question, and 10 minutes to put in your response before everyone starts 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 or just chat!

The Scotlandhour chat is also looking for regional guest hosts and volunteers – get in touch with any of the Scotlandhour team or tweet them using the #scotlandhour hashtag.

Check out the remaining 2013 monthly themes and enjoy the chat. Happy tweeting!
