Year of Stories 2022

Themed Years celebrate the very best of Scotland and its people, with lots of opportunities to get involved in the national campaign. In 2022, Scotland celebrated the Year of Stories. It spotlighted, celebrated and promoted the wealth of stories inspired by, written, or created in Scotland. 

In our "Day in the Life" series we feature a range of people in tourism businesses across the country who exemplify the Themed Year, including those working in cultural and natural heritage, events, food and drink. From a tour guide to a storyteller, an animator to a bookshop manager, you can hear from some of the people who made the most of the Themed Year.

Year of Coasts and Waters 20/21

In 2020 and 2021, we celebrated the very best of Scotland’s Coasts and Waters designed to inspire both visitors and locals to explore and experience our unrivalled shores and coastlines.

Each month we shone a light on some of the people who live, work and have a passion for our coasts and waters in our ‘Day in the Life’ series.
