Historic Environment Scotland (HES), the lead public body for promoting Scotland’s historic environment, has launched a campaign to remind everyone aged 8 to 80 of the infectious fun you can have immersing yourself in Scotland’s history.

The organisation’s new marketing campaign will coincide with the start of the 2017 visitor season, and supports a membership offer where applicants get 6 months free membership by joining Historic Scotland before April 30th 2017.

The multi-platform campaign explains how the source of the ‘History Bug’ has been traced to over 70 sites across the country, from Skara Brae to Stirling Castle. People are encouraged to visit getthebug.scot to find out the symptoms, or report it via social media using the hashtag #getthebug.

Gillian Macdonald, Head of Sales & Marketing at HES, said:

“Our heritage is full of fascinating characters and stories. It only takes one tale of our heroic and colourful past to have you displaying all the symptoms of the History Bug.”

Further information about the 2017 membership offer can be found at getthebug.scot.
