Scottish themed stalls, raffles and clan information. Ale and whisky tastings thanks to The Albar with some available to purchase in a boutique licensed area and plenty of tasty Scottish Dunedin fare to sample - much of this is free.

Guided Edinburgh room tours held throughout the day. Plenty of seating and tables to take in all the activities of the day – bring family and friends for a fun day with a Scottish flavour.

For any folk out there with Scotland in your blood or just an interest to join a team and be a part of this annual event run by volunteers please contact the group on email dunedinedinburghsistercity@gmail.com or through our FB page.
