“From the beautiful scenery to the stunning historic places, down to the bustling but beautiful city center, Scotland makes people unnerved,” he said.
“Our latest campaign, Spirit of Scotland, is based on the experience of visitors who get their special juices while in Scotland … there’s always something different about Scotland that they can not feel anywhere in the world.”
