NEWS: Scotland’s Year of Stories 2022

Join in with Scotland’s Year of Stories 2022 as we celebrate stories inspired by, written, or created in Scotland.

Stories are a vital part of Scotland’s culture and every community has a different tale to tell. Shared stories, whether spoken, written, sung or filmed are what give a sense of place, history and belonging. This year you can look forward to events by community groups, museums, heritage sites and other visitor attractions with storytelling always at the heart of it.

You’ll also have the chance to experience the diversity of stories that Scotland has inspired by visiting the real-life locations from your favourite books, films and songs. From old icons to emerging voices, local legends to tales of the natural world, Scotland’s Year of Stories is sure to capture your imagination.

Visit the website for a taster of what to expect and begin planning your Year of Stories adventure. Don’t forget to share your stories using #TalesOfScotland. We all have a story to tell – what’s yours?
