About Spot On Locations
Spot On Locations is a new company developing travel apps that will take you on amazing journeys to destinations in history where famous events took place.
We have developed three apps - The 'Great War Battlefields of the Western Front', 'Normandy D-Day1944' and 'Scottish Battles and Castles'. They have all been created by a group of experienced travel journalists and photographers.
The Great War Battlefields of the Western Front takes you along the battlefield front line from Flanders in Belgium to the Somme in France. The Normandy D-Day 1944 app takes you along all the landing beaches of Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword, plus further inland to some very interesting locations. The new memorial to Major Dick Winters is just one of the many locations along the Band of Brothers trail.
We have worked with a number of tourist boards over the years in battlefield remembrance tourism throughout France, the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. We enjoy our work immensely because are also avid social and military history enthusiasts.
The Scottish Battles and Castles app takes you from the mystical Isle of Skye, Lewis and Uist to the Highlands and Lowlands. It will help guide you to some of the amazing sites of interest - from Scotland's most haunted castle, to the battlefields of Culloden, Prestonpans, Falkirk and Bannockburn. See the oldest stone memorial to Sir William Wallace and the prison where a 5 year old French drummer boy was held.
We want to share with you using our apps, the locations of the many famous, and not so famous, but interesting locations in Scotland, on the Western Front and the Normandy coast. You will probably find yourself visiting more than once beautiful Scotland, the battlefields of the Great War or Normandy. One visit will always leave you wanting more. Guaranteed!
There is a vast array of historical sites to see - from the huge variety of castles, museums, visitor centres, battlefields, monuments and memorials, to the most simplest of cemeteries - often right out in the middle of a field in France.
No one can visit these sites and not be moved.
Our years of expert experience and our combined thousands of miles travelled will help you to know more about visiting the battlefields and historical locations. To make it easier to get from A to B, to help you be selective about where you want to go, plan your itinerary and give you more time to savour the experience on the battlefields. It can be a very emotional and fascinating journey at the same time.
We always welcome feedback and hope that our app will enhance your time spent journeying around Scotland, on the Great War Western Front or in Normandy.
