Just finished updating the website for West Linton based private tour company, Reel Private Tours of Scotland. Updates included adding two new featured tours – Highland 500 and Edinburgh Walking Tours, new photography, a very detailed new blog entry, more recent testimonials and checking pages…
New Website for local garage
Just launched a new mobile-friendly website for the Manor Garage in West Linton, with details of their services and a bit of history as they are quite long established (over 50 years in business). I did the recent photography as well. https://www.manor-garage.co.uk/
Social Media Marketing
One service I’ve launched recently is social media marketing – largely for clients who don’t have the time to take this on. For The Old Bakehouse in West Linton I manage Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Google+. We’ve had some great success, particularly with Facebook…
Book Festival Podcasts
I’ve been working with the Edinburgh International Book Festival for 10 years now on their Book Festival podcasts, creating a series of hour long recordings of events for the iTunes store and use on their website. Each year we take about 30 events and I…
Louis James Furniture
Louis James Furniture and Woodwork design and make durable and practical pieces to compliment their clients home, garden or business. The original website was five years old and in dire need of refreshment, and in particular made to work on mobile devices. So it’s altogether…
Street Struck Dance
This was a great project to work on originally (2016) as it’s so vibrant, fun and has great photography. The latest update was integrating into Suzanne’s on-line payment system and adding a Facebook feed to save having to blog seperately.
Updating Halvorsen Architects
Halvorsen Architects specialise in sustainable and ecological design for residential, educational and commercial buildings. I redeveloped the website into WordPress for mobile friendly in 2016, so this was mainly cosmetic changes like adding featured posts to the homepage and image thumbnails for the Recent Posts…

Secure website hosting
Increasingly the standard for websites is to have secure hosting (so you’ll see a little green padlock in the browser bar and the website will start with https not http. The padlock appears in your address bar when you visit a secure website. You can…
Hendersyde Self Catering
The website had already been upgraded to mobile friendly in July 2016 so this was just a round of small updates and checking on search engine positioning. The client is very good at updating the photographs herself on a regular basis. Hendersyde Farm offers one…
Steve Douglas initially began designing and facilitating new websites for The Captain's Cabin, Ullapool Bookshop and Lochbroom Hardware back in 2013. Since then the Ullapool shops websites (using WordPress) have been redesigned, updated and re-developed to include social media links (through Instagram and Facebook) as well as maintaining a sleek and modern design. These were produced on time and in a very quick and efficient manner. In 2018 Steve was asked to look at the prospect of an e-commerce site for gifts, maps and local niche books. Since then, Ullapool Trading.com has been launched and Steve was able to provide excellent website design, on site training, product photography and also built an easy to use shopping site, thereby allowing the Ullapool Bookshop to sell their items online in a competitive market throughout Europe and the UK.
The Old Bakehouse
Steve Douglas has been looking after our website for over 15 years. Steve has amazing imagination and creative talent and has designed a very impressive and professional web site for us. We rely on his help to keep us up to date and his creative flair never fails to impress. We cannot recommend him highly enough and look forward to many more years working with Steve.
Reel Private Tours
Steve Douglas has been looking after my website both for my current company and my previous company of Messrs Green-Lyne Private Hire of West Linton, therefore Steve has looked after all aspects of my websites for the last 21 years. He has shown imagination, innovation and reliability, three accolades I do not think could be bettered.It has also been imperative to have someone of Steve’s stature and experience to provide the professionalism that is required.I would recommend Steve thoroughly to develop and look after anyone’s website in the future.
