About Us

A bit of Denmark in Scotland | En smule Danmark i Skotland

The Danish-Scottish Society is the natural focal point for Danes in Scotland as well as others who are interested in Denmark and Danish culture.

We are a friendly group of people living in Scotland with an interest or connection to Denmark, Danish culture, traditions and/or Danish language. We come from all walks of life and have lots of different interests.

Whether you are in Scotland for a short time or you have made Scotland your home, you will always be very welcome at our events.
