Writing in Shetland (again)

I’ve been a bit quiet on the blog posting front over the last few weeks. Put it down to a combination of loads of work (mainly website and client case study writing – love it!) and a bit of travel. I was back up in Shetland a couple of weeks ago. It was our third trip and the place just grows and grows on me – especially when the weather is as good as it was for our week there.

While I was up north, I was invited to pen another guest post for Uradale Organics – and be able to legitimately call myself a Shetland copywriter, or at least a copywriter in Shetland. It’s always a pleasure to help promote Ronnie and Sue on the croft above Scalloway – particularly so this time as they have spent the best part of the last year sorting out the mess from the massive peat slide that nearly swept the croft away just after our visit last August. If you are interested in organic beef, lamb or wool – or any aspect of the modern face of Shetland crofting – this is a fascinating blog to follow.

The Uradale Organics blog is a fascinating insight into Shetland crofting in 2013

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you will see from the post and the rest of their blog, success (and a wee bit of fame) has come out of the post-cataclysm events. Not least because the croft was featured on BBC Countryfile when they did a Shetland special a couple of months ago. Keep up the good work at Uradale.

 

And by the way,  if you’re reading this and you happen to be Shetland-based organisation that could use a bit of creative Web, SEO, brochure, technical or marketing copywriting

Guest copywriter on organic Shetland lamb, beef and wool blog

Like copywriters everywhere, copywriters in Gloucestershire need a break every now and then. I must have enjoyed last week’s trip to Shetland, because here’s my second post on the subject in a week!

Clift Sound: Uradale organic lamb is reared on its shore

In my last post I referenced my visit to Uradale Farm, high above Scalloway, west of Lerwick. While there, I was persuaded to put my writing head on and do a guest post for the Uradale blog. After having been filled with delicious organic lamb and learning about the philosophy behind Ronnie and Sue’s venture, what could I say, but yes.

Uradale already supplies several discerning butchers elsewhere in Great Britain. If you fancy some of the tastiest, most natural meat or wool you’ll ever find, get in touch and order direct from the farm. Next-day delivery is possible across the UK: beats your local Tescasdasons any day!

Uradale cows: beef as well as organic Shetland lamb

After several intense months of writing for a variety of clients in and around Gloucestershire, and elsewhere in the UK, Shetland provided a wonderful change of scene. I may have returned to Cheltenham with a summer cold, but also with newly recharged batteries and a desire not to leave it so long before getting back up to the Shetland Isles.

In the meantime, I’ve also created a dedicated copywriters for Shetland page on my website. I’m not strictly a Shetland copywriter, but now I’ve written for Uradale, and with plans afoot to write for Hillswick Wildlife Sanctuary, I can certainly offer my services as a wordsmith for other Shetland organisations. We’ll see what happens…
