New VisitScotland campaignNew VisitScotland campaign

Historian and TV presenter Neil Oliver is fronting a new VisitScotland campaign in connection with the Year of Scotland’s Islands.

VisitScotland has launched an online series of Surprising Island Trails, which highlight some of the most extraordinary things about the nation’s islands.

The Year of Scotland’s Islands runs until April 2012 and features more than 100 events.

Featuring in the national tourism organisation’s Surprise Yourself Campaign, there are four trails: the Outer Hebrides and Skye; Orkney and Shetland; Inner Hebrides and Islands in the South; and an archaeological trail focusing on Orkney, Shetland and the Outer Hebrides.

Mr Oliver, who provides the voiceover for VisitScotland’s new Surprise Yourself television adverts, said: “Scotland has some of the most amazing islands on earth - historically intriguing, boasting outstanding natural beauty and filled with stunning wildlife.

“I discover something new every time I visit these islands and these trails, in the Year of Scotland’s Islands, will encourage more people to do the same.”
