Join the Celebrations!

Tartan Day ScotlandTartan Day marks the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath in 1320 at Arbroath Abbey. This historical occasion sowed the seeds of modern day democracy and was used as a basis for the American Declaration of Independence. Tartan Day was inspired by this historical occasion to celebrate all that is good about Scotland – its people, its heritage, its history, its culture and its amazing legacy to the world.

At the beginning of April each year, a week-long programme of very special events commemorates all that is best about Scotland and the Scots, home and away.
