Pauline Determined to Make Success of PR Challenge

Working in public relations but in a rural location seems like a recipe for a very quiet day, but a young PR and events consultant is determined to prove there’s money to be made.

25 year-old Pauline Foster has left her marketing post at Dobbie’s Garden Centre, near Edinburgh, to set up her own PR and events agency in Oban.

She says of her setting up of Pure Shores: “I believe my services will help attract even more visitors to the many exciting businesses and events going on out here. I am passionate about the west coast of Scotland and its beauty. I feel very lucky to be here.”

Already, she has picked up three clients: Whisky Coast – a collaboration of 16 whisky distilleries along the west coast of Scotland, along with a number of hotels, restaurants and golf courses; Vertical Descents – an outdoor activity provider in Fort William; and Duart Castle, on the Isle of Mull.
