    Luxury holiday in Ireland ad uses photo of castle in Scotland

    An online company called Women Freebies has caused a great deal of annoyance by using a photo of one of Scotland's most famous castles -to advertise a competition to win a holiday in Ireland. It posted the photo of beautiful Eilean Donan Castle in the Scottish Highlands to its Facebook page with 800,000 followers, and the error was soon spotted by irritated members of the public, as well as officials.


    The company don't seem that bothered, as the post and photo are still up. https://m.facebook.com/WomenFreebies...gle.de%2F&_rdr

    Maybe it was done on purpose...a subtle snark against Scotland by the Irish.
