Anglophile Competition: Enter to win a trip to Scotland – whilst it’s still part of Britain!

Later this year the fine and upstanding Scottish people will finally get their chance to vote if they wish to remain part of the United Kingdom. What’s the United Kingdom? That’s England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Also known as Britain.

Although it would be great if Scotland keeps in the union, it would also be an exciting chance for the Scottish people to completely control their destiny. Sure, it’s a risky move, but if I was Scottish I know I would vote for independence.

Scotland is a beautiful country and now’s your chance to enter to win a week full of unique Scottish experiences for 2 people: stay in a castle, meet a Scottish Clan Chief, sample a wee dram at a distillery, visit Loch Ness and so much more.

This is one of the best competitions we’ve seen at Blimey! towers and you have until 30th July 2014 to win, so enter now.
