British Airways and VisitScotland have joined forces to launch a television advertising campaign to promote Scotland in the Year of Natural Scotland campaign.

The 30-second advert will run from 20th April and feature BA aircraft and scenic views of Scotland.

BA will also back the campaign with banners on its own website promoting flight and holiday offers to Scotland, with particular emphasis from the sales and marketing team at Heathrow, Gatwick and London City.

VisitScotland chairman Mike Cantlay said: “We’re delighted to have BA on board for our Year of Natural Scotland campaign. The South-East of England represents one of our biggest markets, with the airline already responsible for delivering tens of thousands of visitors each year.

“Hopefully by reminding people that we’re only an hour away this will entice even more people to come to Scotland for a relaxing break.”

We covered the launch of the Year of Natural Scotland with a story about the beautiful Shetland ponies in onesies at the start of the year. See a picture of the cuties and get more information here.

Don’t forget that you can find many holiday cottages in Scotland at our main site.
