Scotland is a country of rich culture, vibrant traditions, sprawling countryside and much more, and this year is destined to continue that legacy with the following developments:

 

Journey to Change

This campaign launched in 2021 and continues this year to help find innovative solutions and initiatives to tackle climate change, work toward eradicating homelessness, provide greater access to renewable energy sources in remote areas and more.

 

Scotland’s Year of Stories 2022

Scotland’s official theme for 2022 is Year of Stories, and the country will share its stories through spoken and written word, in song and on film. Travel planners can anticipate events from VisitScotland Business Events, community groups, museums and heritage sites.

 

The Highland Games

The Highland Games, a key part of Scottish culture for hundreds of years, return in person this spring. Groups find first-hand experience of this sporting tradition a wonderful reason to visit and learn more about the character of Scotland.

 

New Flights

WestJet added Scotland to its international destinations with new, non-stop service from Toronto (YYZ) to Edinburgh (EDI) and Glasgow (GLA), beginning this spring. Edinburgh launches June 2, with three weekly fights, and Glasgow takes off May 20, four times weekly.
