Welcome to the Finnish Scottish Society!

Tervetuloa! Välkommen! Fàilte! Walcum!

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

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

We organise events and activities that bring together Scots in Finland, Finns, and everyone else who is interested in Scotland and Scottish culture. These events and activities revolve around themes such as music, dancing, food and drink, 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 other content we want to share.
