Why Work with Two Scots Abroad?
55K+ travel lovers land at Two Scots Abroad every month for travel advice, destination guides and to ogle at our travel photography. We appear on page one of Google for many of our articles, how? Gemma’s has kick ass SEO skills (she has many in her travel blogging toolkit), she’s even presenting on how she managed to triple her pageviews in less than one year at this year’s TBEX conference in Ireland.
30K followers over four social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) also hop aboard for the ride but numbers aside, we are real people and that is why businesses and boards from Tinggly to Vancouver Tourism have teamed up with us since 2014. Let us represent your brand and here is how…
How Can We Work Together?
I think it’s obvious that we love to travel; cities, countryside, popular, off beat we’ve covered lots but want to see more then share it with our readers. We’ve worked with over 100 companies at home (Scotland) and abroad to promote tourism.
Here are some examples:
- The luxurious yet quirky Big Berry Glampsite in Slovenia (page 1 – Google keywords ‘Big Berry Slovenia’)
- Our Scottish partners, HAGGiS Adventures – review of their Isle of Skye tour (Google page 1 – keywords ‘Haggis Adventures’)
»» Meeting Two Scots Abroad was funnier that we’d ever expected. We had the pleasure of spending the day with Gemma and Craig in one of our tours and it was so much fun. Thanks to them we’ve had other guests joining our tours because they follow their travel recommendations. They are both very professional and down to earth people that we now call friends

Brand Ambassador Programmes
We are now at a stage of our blogging career where we would like to nurture longer term relationships with brands. Are you looking for a fun, reliable, tech savvy couple (or individual) to represent your brand and feel we are a catch? Please contact us here. It helps that we like getting our photo taken and (cringe) are photogenic. Craig does actually look that great in real life (OK, I’m biased!)
Freelance Writing Hire
Gemma is a woman of many talents, she’s adaptable which makes her an ideal candidate for freelance writing covering many topics. Her passions are travel, gender equality and the outdoors but she loves to research making no topic unattainable.
Sponsored Posts, Reviews, Content Creation
Do you have a new product, service or a hot destination which the world has to hear about? We can help you spread the word. Links, advertisement and reviews on new or older (but useful) articles are typically how we advertise at Two Scots Abroad. All reviews are honest of course, regardless of who is footing the bill. Gemma has also co-hosted Twitter chats for the weekly #JAChat and the monthly #ScotlandHour, pulling in her own and new audiences with energy and local knowledge. Like our social media channels? You can advertise there too. Need help creating beautiful, shareable and clickable pins? Gemma has over two years experience of making them work for our site. Pins should mean traffic!
Here are some examples of our reviews:
- Scenic views from the Boathouse B&B in Isle of Bute, Scotland (916 pageview, less than one month old)
- Super modern hotel, gem of a find on iDrive in Orlanda, Florida – Avanti Resort (8668 pageviews, at least 1.96K repins)
- We stayed in a prison! Celica – Ljubljana, Slovenia (11,779 pageviews, Google page 1 – keywords ‘things to do in Ljubljana’)
We accept banner advertisements in our articles and on our sidebar if the product/service fits our niche and we can find a good match to place it. With 22 countries on our destination page, I’m sure we can find it a home.
Gemma has been teaching 10-18 year olds since 2009 and although she has predominantly taught politics and current affairs to classrooms of 30 students she also has experience of delivering speeches to assembly rooms full of students and executing training courses for staff members during staff training days. This year Gemma is combining her teaching skills and blogging knowledge and delivering a presentation on SEO in Ireland at the popular TBEX conference. Gemma has also been asked by Travel Massive Glasgow to present on the same topic and spoke with college students at Kelvin College in Glasgow about travel and blogging in general.
»» Collaborating with Gemma from Two Scots Abroad was an absolute pleasure. She travelled to Glasgow to help my college students understand the world of blogging. Feedback was that she was ‘inspirational’ ‘friendly’ ‘knowledgeable’ and not to mention ‘funky’. I was impressed with her flexibility in her well prepared presentation and how she adapted to the differing levels of student knowledge. I know any future partnerships she’s involved in with be handled professionally and with a friendly attitude.
