Scotland’s national day

St Andrew’s Day is Scotland’s national day. It’s a symbolic moment to spend time with people we value, in places we love, to celebrate our richly diverse communities and connect with friends of Scotland in other countries across the world.

To celebrate our national day, the Scottish Government want to show our audiences that Scotland values their connection by creating a collective social moment, by raising our glasses and "toasting" Scotland’s rich and diverse food and drink offering.

Raise a toast - and get involved

To get involved in the conversation and help spread the St Andrew’s Day toast, create your own social toast using #StAndrewsDay and #ScotlandisNow, on St Andrews Day (30 November 2022).
