Truly Edinburgh, an Edinburgh visitor guide, is the website of copywriter Neil Gunn and part of NG Writing Services.
About Truly Edinburgh
As a trained journalist and experienced copywriter, I know Edinburgh very well.
My goal for Truly Edinburgh is to bridge the gap between official publications and unauthoritative travel blogs.
Truly Edinburgh has a combination of feature length articles, full of well-researched information, that many other sites never mention and blog posts, less formal perhaps, but equally well researched.
The content is not written as a review or endorsement of a business but essentially as a reliable source of information for visitors to Edinburgh and those who just want to know more about the city.
As a lover of history, there is also a section of Scottish history articles, famous Scots in history, early kings and queens of Scotland and other related topics.
For the future
Truly Edinburgh is still a work in progress so there are some ambitious plans for the future. This will include more things to do in Edinburgh, a section on food and drink and where to stay in Edinburgh. And much more too.
In time, Truly Edinburgh will build into an indispensable source of information.
The Site Index will give you access to all the content on Truly Edinburgh.
If you would like to get in touch with any comments, the Contact page has details.
About Neil Gunn
In more than 20 years of copywriting, I’ve written some serious material for Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities and the Scottish Government. I’ve also provided research for BBC Radio 4.
I’ve written hard copy for publications in the UK, America, Canada and Australia and online content for a myriad of websites.
I’ve gained experience writing travel for some of the big boys – Expedia, Tui and Citalia – and researched and written feature articles on Scotland’s history and heritage for the American market. I’ve presented my research material to a representative of the Court of Lord Lyon, the body responsible for heraldic affairs in Scotland, and written and organised a worldwide PR campaign on behalf of an American/Scottish arts and heritage organisation. I have also helped to produce events held during New York Tartan Week. Also promotional material for an annual concert of Scottish poetry and music in New York. In addition, I have just completed a short history, in book form, of one of the leading Scottish clan societies.
This is only some of the copywriting experience I bring to the table.
