    This might be a strange silly question ... but I'll ask anyway :)

    Would Visit Scotland ever think of creating a basic online training course for people to learn about some of our Scottish history and culture? I think lots of tourists possibly try and learn a bit about Scotland before they visit.

    Watching or listening to videos, then taking part in a questionnaire with multiple choice questions is a great way to learn. You could also give people the chance to keep taking the questionnaires until they get 100%.

    I recently took part in this type of training and found it quite enjoyable and a good way to remember and learn.

    You could just have some fun questionnaires to test our knowledge of Scotland or even turn it into an online game :).

    Great suggestion @DMWScotland we will certainly discuss internally and let you know the outcome.

    We are going to Harris on the Uig to Tarbert ferry in October.  It's our first time to the Outer Hebrides - any tips or hints from seasoned travellers out there?  We are taking our dog too - can dogs get seasick??!!
