The Scotnews agency was set up in 2002 by Craig Watson, an author and national newspaper journalist who has worked in Scotland and England. His positions have included home affairs correspondent, environment correspondent, reporter and feature writer.

The news agency has filed copy to national, local and international newspapers and provided a media consultancy service for a number of high-profile national organisations.

This proven track record in journalism enables Scotnews to provide a high-quality service to clients dealing with the media – based on a genuine understanding of the industry.

Client confidentiality is taken extremely seriously by Scotnews, which has already worked successfully on a number of sensitive projects.

Clients can also expect a more personal service than that offered by the large PR firms. Fees, which can be paid on an hourly or retainer basis, are also competitive.
