On the one hand, omitting any sites in Wales or Scotland on a literary tourism map seems to be a rather glaring oversight.
But on the other hand, it isn’t as if anyone plans to travel soon …
That said, VisitBritain has apologized for the map it tweeted yesterday that put just some trees in Wales and connected books written either in Scotland or by Scottish writers to English sites instead.
The tweet, which has since been deleted, was sent by error on the VisitBritain account when in fact the image actually intended to be VisitEngland’s literary heroes map, the Guardian reports.
You can still see the map in question by checking out the Guardian’s article on the negative reaction from Scottish and Welsh officials.
