HUNDREDS of views from homes have been shared across the Forth Valley as part of a social media campaign.

From images of iconic locations to back gardens, residents from the wider local area have been sharing their unique views of the world while staying home during the coronavirus lockdown.

The pictures have been shared as part of VisitScotland's #AWindowOnScotland campaign, launched around a month ago.

Posts from the Forth Valley area captured some striking images of the Wallace Monument and much more.

Neil Christison, regional director at VisitScotland, said: "We're thrilled at the reaction to #AWindowOnScotland from residents and heartened that businesses are engaging with the campaign and using the opportunity to share their windows on Scotland with the world during this challenging time.

"The staycation market will be a key driver in the country's economic recovery and the many wonderful views people have been sharing of the region while they stay at home will surely be an incentive for many to travel to Forth Valley when the time comes.

"The campaign is far from over and we'd encourage residents and businesses to continue posting their views, however they may look, as it is all Scotland, to help lift the spirits of those at home and abroad."

People looking to take part are asked to take a picture of a view from their property and post it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using hashtags #AwindowOnScotland and their location, such as #Alloa.

Since the launch of the campaign, around 2,500 residents have contributed across the three platforms.

Outlandish Journeys, a tour company in the area, is one organisation supporting the campaign.

Steve McLeish, owner, said: "I'm passionate about promoting Scotland to the world, mainly through my social media channels, so when I learned of VisitScotland's wonderful #AWindowOnScotland campaign, I began sharing pictures and videos of previous tour journeys with my online audience.

"It has reminded those lucky enough to call Scotland home, just how beautiful, diverse and rich our heritage and culture truly is.

"I hope that when people can, many will be encouraged to 'staycation' in Scotland and enjoy a new journey, right from their own doorstep."
