Work with me

Are you looking for an experienced and results driven Scottish travel blogger/influencer to promote your business?  If the answer is yes – look no further.

My social media/ digital presence

I’ve travelled extensively throughout Scotland and have an expert knowledge of the country as a visitor destination.

I studied Scottish history and literature at Edinburgh University, so I’m able to craft well-researched, factual and engaging content that’s been SEO optimised. This ensures it remains searchable and relevant for years to come.

‘Scotland with The Wee White Dug’ is a well-established and popular Scottish travel blog. It’s reached over 160 countries worldwide and has attracted high profile media attention too, including features by BBC Scotland, The Herald on Sunday, The Daily Record the People’s Friend Magazine and Sky News.

In addition to my blog, I run the following popular social media feeds too:


* @theweewhitedug

* @scotland_with_sam

* @a_d_granty (my husband‘s affiliated feed)


* ‘Scotland with The Wee White Dug’


* @theweewhitedug


* @theweewhitedug


* @theweewhitedug

I’m proud to have grown my social feeds organically and honestly, amassing 284,000+ followers with a genuine interest in Scotland and Scottish travel.

My photography/videography

My photography has been used in a number of publications including magazines, newspapers, calendars and websites.  

My @scotland_with_sam Instagram feed (previously @bean_nighe) was featured on Instagram’s prestigious suggested user list.  It’s also been recommended by The Scotsman, Daily Record and Matador Network as one of the best Scottish Instagram accounts to follow.  

My @theweewhitedug Instagram feed has been recommended by Visit Scotland and The Herald on Sunday as one of the best Scottish Instagram accounts to follow.

In June 2021 I joined TikTok and within four weeks I’d gained over 50,000 followers. A few months later, my TikTok feed was featured by the Daily Record as one of the best Scottish feeds to follow.

Why work with me?

I’m reliable, professional and easy to work with. I’m also open, honest and transparent – you won’t find hidden Instagram likes on my feeds.

Having a good understanding of marketing and communications has enabled me to grow my brand into one that’s recognised, trusted and respected in the Scottish tourism sector and beyond.

As a Scottish travel blogger/influencer running a number of popular social media feeds and a well-established blog, I have a proven track record when it comes to generating bookings/sales. My followers engage with my content, trust me and value my opinion.

My clients frequently report an increase in social media followers, website traffic and bookings when they work with me. One small, family-run hotel in the Highlands even reported receiving bookings for as far afield as Australia and the United States after hiring me.

These are the services I provide:
  • Destination campaigns for local councils/tourist groups
  • Accommodation, restaurant, visitor attraction and event promotional campaigns/reviews
  • Write freelance articles and guest blogs for your website
  • Social media feed takeovers
  • Host competitions & product giveaways
