What would the world be like without Scottish innovators?

The question is explored by VisitScotland in its newly released animation which will be used to promote the 2016 Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design, a 12-month programme of exciting events and activity, that will showcase Scotland’s position as an innovation nation.

Scotland is synonymous with invention. From the telephone, television to ATMs and the kaleidoscope, the country has made a huge contribution to the world.

The inspiring new video should help attract visitors to Scotland during this year of celebrations.

Scotland’s tourism minister Fergus Ewing said: “In 2016 we are carrying forward the momentum from last year’s celebration of food and drink and will demonstrate our credentials as an innovation nation. From the Forth Rail Bridge to Dolly the Sheep we’ll show that Scotland’s creative, modern and inventive past, present and future can continue to inspire and influence audiences across the globe. I invite you all to enjoy the fantastic and diverse range of events on offer throughout the year.”
