Entrepreneur Margaret Scott created Views On Top, drawing on her life-long love of travel.Says Margaret; “When I started travelling in my early 20s the internet didn’t exist and I had to rely on a five-centimetre thick guide book with no photos. I quickly realised the best way to get your bearings in a new place was to find the highest vantage point and from there, work out where to go next.” Ever since then, Margaret has made it her mission to find the highest lookout in each location she visits, seeking out that spectacular moment of discovery as a panoramic view unfolds.
“I’ve often been frustrated, not knowing where to go for the best view, or where to go for a drink or a meal with a view. So in 2011 I decided; there should be an app for this!”
Margaret has spent the past two years researching destinations for Views On Top. The app currently includes over 700 places in 392 locations across 85 countries. From rooftop bars in New York to panoramic restaurants in Hong Kong, mountain top views in Switzerland to adrenalin rushes at towers and bridges around the world, Views On Top has the world’s best up-high locations for views, entertaining experiences and adrenalin activities. You can search by location, the type of experience you want to have, or see what’s popular with others and be inspired to visit somewhere you hadn’t heard of before.
Views On Top shows how to find each place, with contact details and information on opening days and times. Perfect for planning a trip or searching new experiences, you can easily find places with great views ‘Near Me’, wherever you are with Location Services turned on.
Other great features include the ability to keep track, on personal world maps, of places you’ve visited and build a ‘bucket list’ of places you want to go. Uploaded images are credited with your name and it’s easy to add comments and post tips to Facebook and Twitter.
“If you know of a top view, scenic destination or rooftop bar that hasn’t been included – please suggest it! Views On Top is a really easy, fun way to share favourite views with others.”
Just last year, I was proud to be at the top of the corporate ladder, a female CEO. Yet I’m prouder now to say I’m the inventor of Views On Top, an iPhone app that helps people find places with great views in scenic destinations around the world.
Investing my time, energy and money into creating a legacy that shares my passion for travel with others has been the most fulfilling role in my career to date. And I hope by telling the story of my journey, that I may inspire others to take a fresh look at what they’re doing with their lives too. [Read more…]
