About Me

I’m Ailsa Gillies;

A 22 year old Scottish freelance journalist, content creator, former columnist for national music and entertainments magazine ‘The Weekender’ with a wide range of experience in Public Relations and Media.

With publications in BBC Scotland’s The Social, The Alloa Advertiser, Isle of Bute News, That Fangirl Life and The Weekender, I’m versatile in various styles of writing and media creation. You can view more of my work here.


I graduated from the University of Stirling in June 2021 with a BA (Hons) Degree in Film, Media and Journalism.

My unquenchable thirst for knowledge has led me to progress onto a taught Postgraduate course. As of 2022, I am due to complete my Master of Science degree in International Journalism in September.

What to expect

Here you will find articles filed into different categories ranging from Bute, News, Culture, Music, Politics and Social Media.

I welcome you, my readers, to the site where I take pride in making the mundane remarkable and the ordinary unforgettable – one word at a time.
