Welcome to the Finnish Scottish Society!

Welcome! Tervetuloa! Välkommen! Walcum! Fàilte!

Founded in 2016, the Finnish Scottish Society is a non-profit and non-political cultural and social association. Its goals are:

  • to promote and raise awareness of Scottish culture;
  • to further cultural co-operation and relations between Finland and Scotland and their peoples;
  • to bring together Scots living in Finland, their families and people resident in Finland who have an interest in Scottish culture, and to act as a point of contact for them.

We organise events and activities that bring together Scots living here in Finland, Finns, and everyone else who is interested in Scotland and Scottish culture. These events and activities revolve around themes such as music, food, films, poetry and history. On this website you will be able to find details on how to become a member of the Society, information on upcoming events and content we want to share with members.
