I publish a lot of free information on this website and even though I also offer some paid services (more below), the majority of my work goes into creating great content about Scotland that you can access entirely for free.
This is only possible because I have a fab community of people who love what I do and regularly support it.
A lot of time and effort goes into every single travel guide, itinerary and inspiring blog post on this site. And unless I’m on a paid campaign, also a lot of money to do. trips for research and find amazing places & experiences to tell you about.
There are many ways you can directly support my work – with and without money – and the best bit is that they give you access to my Scotland community with exclusive content, social events and more!
Become a Patron
I launched my Patreon community back when I started my Scotland podcast Wild for Scotland – but you don’t have to be a podcast listener to enjoy the benefits of it!
What is Patreon? Patreon allows you to support the creators whose content you love with a monthly donation – and gives you direct access to them and lots of perks. We have three different membership levels starting at £3 a month – that’s the same as a takeaway coffee. Read more about the membership levels, perks and prices here.
What’s in it for you? Every month, your donation supports the making of the podcast and gives me a boost as a creative. In return, you get rewards like glimpses behind-the-scene, exclusive bonus content, social events with opportunities to ask questions and discounts towards my trip planning services.
Donate via Ko-fi
If regular giving isn’t in the cards, you can also donate an amount of your choice to my virtual coffee tin on Ko-fi. This is a one-time donation, so perfect if you don’t want to donate monthly OR would rather throw a pile of money at me at once. LOL
Book my Services or Browse my Shop
I’d love to help make your trip extra special.

Support without money
Financial giving isn’t always an option, but you can still support what I do.
♥ Follow the show on social media and engage with my content
You can find me on Instagram, Facebook and Instagram under @watchmesee and @wildforscotland (for my Scotland podcast).
Save or share my posts, leave a comment or double-tap to like.
♥ Share my blog and/or podcast with your friends
Word of mouth is the single-most important and meaningful way for me to reach new people. If you come across a particularly useful resource on my blog or an inspiring story on my podcast, send the link to a friend or family member who might enjoy them too.
You can also post about my guides and podcast on social media and tell your followers why you enjoy my work. Don’t forget to tag me so I can thank you!
♥ Write a review for my podcast
You can leave a review on my Facebook page or – if you listen to my podcast and like it – rate & review the show on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
♥ Use my affiliate links and tell businesses I recommend how you heard about them.
One of the ways I make money as a travel blogger is by using affiliate links to hotels, tours and services I love. If you book through these links, I earn a small commission without any extra costs to you. If you book accommodation or an experience after reading about them on my website or social media, please use my links by clicking through from my website.
If there is no direct booking link, please tell the businesses you book with if you heard about them from me. I may not earn a commission, but it shows them that I’m in their corner.
