St Andrew’s Day

St Andrew’s Day celebrates Andrew the Apostle, who became the patron saint of Scotland when the country’s independence was declared after signing The Declaration of Arbroath. This holiday highlights the very best of Scottish culture, from food and drink to music and ceilidh dancing! There are many St Andrew’s Day events taking place, although we recommend attending the Saltire Festival which celebrates Scotland in the Home of the Flag.
