Shetland Woollies Goes Viral

Shetland Ponies Show Why Scotland's For Them! 

Some great images have been going worldwide over the past few days showing some natty Shetland cardigans on some rather unsuspecting Shetland Ponies!

Posing in their winter woollies, the ponies were marking the Year of Natural Scotland by sporting some rather plush knitwear that wouldn't seem out of place in any trendy city hangout. Or indeed in the Great British Bake Off...

We have been assured that no animals were harmed in the making of this PR stunt and both Fivla and Vitamin (yes for that is what they are called!) didn’t seem to mind all the attention their custom made attire brought them.

The Shetland Pony ambassadors from thephotos come courtesy of Thordale Shetland Stud Centre, and are wearing jumpers made of Shetland wool created by local Shetland knitter Doreen Brown, of Shetland Collection.

What next?

The Edinburgh Zoo Pandas in Kilts? Otters in wet suits? Or Scottish Deer in full camouflage gear?

For more information about visiting The Shetlands or how about booking a lighthouse stay on the islands.

A Bit of Scottish History and Heritage for 2013?

Brave was not our favourite Scottish featuring movie of 2012 - Skyfall and Angel's Share being much more our thing - but with their multi million pound spend VisitScotland did produce some interesting little print pieces based around the movie. So if your looking for some ideas here's the Brave Itineraries for you to have a browse through.

Planning a Golf Holiday in Scotland for 2013?

You may be excused for thinking that the only thing happening in Scottish golf terms over the next few years is The Ryder Cup 2014!

Well that's more than eighteen months away and there's a whole host of golf courses that can be played ahead of then across the whole of Scotland.

Scotland's For Me will be featuring lots of golf options through 2013 and we thought we'd start the New year by building a new bookshelf of golf promo materials in the blog. So here's a nice wee reference area for you featuring some of the best information in print on golf in Scotland.
