Three Days of Wild Celebrations

As winter slowly approaches, with shortening days and colder temperatures, celebration in Scotland goes into full swing. From joyful festivals of food and culture to commemorate our Patron Saint St. Andrews, to dancing the night away at a ceilidh or toasting a haggis in honour of our favourite poet, winter in Scotland is full of cosy celebration.
