Homecoming Scotland 2009

The Gathering 2009

Edinburgh is extending a very warm invitation to join our year long Homecoming Scotland celebrations in Scotland in 2009.

2009 marks the 250th anniversary of the birth of the Scottish national poet and cultural icon Robert Burns, the inspiration behind the year long celebration of some of Scotland's great contributions to the world. Whether you have Scots ancestry or simply a passion for Scotland, 2009 will be an exceptional year to visit.

As part of the homecoming celebrations Edinburgh will be hosting the worlds biggest ever Clan Gathering in July and we are working with our events partners to provide a wide range of new and complimentary events to our current schedule. We will update our news section when events are confirmed.

Further information on events across Scotland is available from the Homecoming Scotland website.
