Scotland from the Roadside on Facebook

Scotland from the Roadside runs a popular group on Facebook for anyone who has a connection to or interest in Scotland. It was set up in January 2010 to take us all on A Journey Around Scotland and share experiences, information, photos and videos from all around the country. For

The group is open to anyone that lives or has lived in Scotland; anyone that has visited or plans to visit; anyone with Scottish ancestry; or anyone that simply likes the look of or is interested in Scotland. Feel free to join; share your photos, videos and stories; ask questions; make new friends... and generally have a great time!

The following sections include details on:

and (below) how to stop SftR filling up your newsfeed.

Legal Notice

Scotland from the Roadside is not responsible for comments or wall postings made by visitors to the group and reserves the right to remove any content it deems inappropriate. This includes posts containing commercial content as well as content that harasses, abuses, threatens, or in any other way violates the rights of others. Scotland from the Roadside upholds the Terms of Service standards administered by Facebook. Facebook encourages all users to utilise the "Report" option when they find abusive content.

Is Your News Feed Filled With Scotland Photos?

Finally, if you really don't want to see all the group photos, etc. in your news feed, but want to remain a member of Scotland from the Roadside you can "unfollow" the group:

  • In your news feed look for the downwards facing arrow to the right of the post;
  • Click on this then select "Unfollow Scotland from the Roadside";
  • You will then be asked to confirm that is what you want to do.
  • Once you confirm it you won't see posts from this group in your news feed, but you will still be a member of the group.

Alternatively you can set your notifications preferences, either for all the posts in the group or for individual posts.

To turn off notifications for the group, click on the Notifications link that appears in the bottom right of the group banner. You then set the notifications to:

  • All Posts
  • Highlights (though I am not sure what this actually means)
  • Friends' Posts
  • Off

For an individual post, click the arrow to the top right of the post itself. A list of options appear, one of which is "Turn Off Notifications".

The Admin Team

As you would expect, a group the size of Scotland from the Roadside could not run the way it does without a team of admins that make sure the members of the group can concentrate on what we are all here for: appreciating the many and varied photos of Scotland, the spectacular videos and joining in with the friendly banter.

In comparison to the group's membership, the admin team is very small and each and every one of them volunteer to do their (at times thankless) tasks in their spare time. So it is inevitable that, from time to time, some posts, comments, etc. that should not be in the group are missed by them. If you spot anything you don't think should be on the group it would be helpful if you could bring it to our attention by clicking on the downwards facing arrow to the right of the post and then click on "Report to Admin"; by doing this all the admins will be notified there is an issue and it will be dealt with as soon as possible.

Any anti-admin post or comments added to the group page will be removed as these tend to get out of hand very quickly. The admins have the same right as everyone else to be treated with respect and should not be expected to tolerate anyone doing otherwise. If you have an issue with any decisions made by any of the admins, please let us know in private so it can be discussed and resolved.

Note that blocking group admins does not stop them from seeing what you post in the group and while they cannot respond directly to you being blocked does not stop them from dealing with you as appropriate. We will also investigate any reason why you would have one of more of the admins blocked and will also deal with that as appropriate, which will likely involve removal from the group.
