With the list of Scottish blogs and those calling themselves a Scottish blogger growing it is time for a comprehensive list of the biggest and best blogs around. Most Scottish bloggers, predominantly in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen will stick to what they know and very few will be at the level of gaining Scotland-wide coverage.
Having said that, more and more Scottish bloggers are getting the recognition they deserve and are really starting to make a splash nationally. Some Scottish blogs do it for the love of travel, others have a niche topic that has huge appeal and many are just really bloody good at what they do. Here are some of the best Scottish bloggers I have seen on my travels.
Oh yeah… me! I write for thisgirldoes which covers events, food and drink in Edinburgh and Glasgow. I started blogging to document my disastrous adventures with online dating but once I got a (lovely) boyfriend, I moved my attention to the second loves of my life. Having worked in advertising and PR for over 12 years, blogging is something of an outlet for me and I am so grateful to have had some amazing experiences.
There are few who do it quite so beautifully as Sarah at Brass Buttons and Confidence. She documents the life of her family, fashion and fabulous photography – she is an artistic genius. There is something so personal about Sarah’s work, it would appear everyone of her almost 20k Instagram followers would love her as a friend.

I have only met Rebecca once but was blown away by her beauty and stunning outfit choices. It is apt, then, that she runs the hugely successful Styled By Rebecca, showcasing her latest outfits (when on shoot or not), her beauty recommendations and her glamorous lifestyle. One to definitely watch. One of the best Scottish bloggers around.

The gents behind Boys Eat Scotland and who run Your Scottish Tour, Donnie and Raymond, continuously share the best places across the country to eat, sleep and play. My favourite element of their site is coverage of the the Mull and Iona Food Tour. Having visited a few of places listed, I can testify this country has a wealth of incredible eateries and the boys are making it their purpose to share them with us all.
