Arts & Culture

Scotland's arts and culture offering is so much more than just bagpipes, tartan and thistles. Don't get us wrong, we are mighty proud of our cultural icons, but when you consider that Scotland is home to the world's festival capital, outstanding summer music festivals, blockbuster movie locations, breathtaking art and architecture and a captivating literary festival, you'll realise that those aspects of our cultural landscape are only just the tip of the iceberg.
