2023 scottish heritage series
The culture of Scotland can be traced back for nearly a thousand years, and it is still active and thriving today. This series allows you to discover what makes Scotland unique, provides a deeper understanding of its history and the people that have shaped it, and gives you the opportunity to carry forth and share some of Scotland’s rich traditions.
If you love history, music, learning, and adventure, then this series is for you!
Here is this year’s line up:
