The Cuillin Collective has been in the explainer video market for over 12 years. Due to our wealth of knowledge and expertise, we’re proud to be one of the best explainer videos makers in the region.
Connectedly, we’ve never really targeted any specific region of the world. However, we have worked with companies from the Americas, Europe, Australia, Africa, and Asia. In fact, every corner of the globe excluding Antarctica!
Scotland-Based Explainer Video Company
Being based in Scotland is a big selling point for us. Why? Well, everybody loves Scotland and generally has a connection with Scotland at some point in their family history. However, we’ve never really advertised ourselves in Scotland. We’re not entirely sure why though.
Furthermore, even if you don’t have a direct connection to Scotland, it’s well-known for its whisky distilleries, bagpipes, vibrant music culture, and stunning lochs. Scotland also tends to be a popular destination for travellers from all over the world, thanks to its stunning landscape and architecture, hearty food, and legendary golf courses.

Collaborating with Other Scottish Companies
Over the past 3 months (Feb-May 2019), we’ve been working with a company over in Inverness. We produced 2 explainer videos for their new company (which we can’t share just yet!)
All in all, it was a great project and we actually got to meet the client which was a first for us. Normally we chat over Google Meet, Skype or Mavenlink but never face-to-face. It was a wonderful experience and we ended up with 2 of the best explainer videos we’ve ever produced. They were simple and pretty, not to mention, the animation was great fun to work on and watch.
Breaking Down the Cuillin Collective
So here we are, a Scottish company advertising for Scottish clients. It feels a touch like we’re going backwards because normally it’s local, national then International.
To tell you a bit about us, we started our company during the recession, which doesn’t seem like the best time to start a company, but here we are, more than 12 years later, still growing.
Regardless of the recession, video production was still primarily the domain of production houses in 2009, with little opportunity for freelancers. In 2019, the pendulum has swung the other way, with more freelancers than work. Nowadays, we see an improvement as more businesses recognise the value of video production in enhancing their operations.
If you’d like to know more about our journey, check out our about us page. You’ll see that we do things in our own way and whatever we do seems to work.
The Cuillin Collective is based on the stunningly beautiful Isle of Skye which is part of the Inner Hebrides. We have super fast broadband and access to some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet. I suppose this is where a lot of our creativity comes from to create the best explainer videos.
