Celebrating the best of Scottish culture - past and present

Each year people in Scotland and around the globe celebrate the life, works and legacy of one of our greatest storytellers - Robert Burns.

The first Burns supper is thought to have taken place over 200 years ago in 1801, where friends of the late poet came together to raise a toast to his influential and entertaining poetry and writing.

Today, many of these Burns Night traditions remain intact, such as enjoying whisky, haggis and of course a Burns poem or two. But Scotland is a country that is constantly evolving and looking to the future, from food and drink innovations to modern twists on traditional music.

This year, we’re encouraging people across the globe to come together to share how they’re celebrating Burns Night and innovative Scottish culture. Don’t forget to tag your posts to be part of the celebrations!
