Last Call for Votes & Scottish Heritage!

Happy Friday everyone!

The week’s are really flying by aren’t they – we’re already coming towards the end of June!

We want to focus this week’s blog on a final call out for votes on our Photo Competition! We’ve had our submissions and now it’s time to decide who is going to win the £50 prize.

Voting is very simple – but in case you need a reminder here’s how you do it:

  • Visit our Photo Competition page – here
  • Scroll down and you’ll see the selection of submissions
  • Over each photo you’ll see a thumbs up button and an option to share it.
  • Click the thumbs up and you’re done! Your vote has been cast.

It’s as easy as that – so get voting!
