How #ScotlandHour is helping Scottish Tourism

A look at how one question during #ScotlandHour got lots of answers

  1. As the owner of a self-catering cottage in Edinburgh, I try to meet all our guests on arrival and like to find out if they have made all their plans in advance, or if they're looking for recommendations for places to go and perhaps restaurants or cafes to eat at. As we're so close to Clarinda's Tearoom in the Royal Mile (via Campbell's Close), it usually features on our list of places to go. But occasionally I'm stuck for good places to recommend for family dining. So I took the opportunity during the March 2012 #ScotlandHour (where the subject was Food and Drink) to ask a question about where Twitter followers like to go for family meals out. I got lots of great responses!
