Scottish week Peterhead

A little about Scottish week

Since 1961 Scotland and other parts of the World have celebrated our nationality and the produce of Scotland by holding a gala festival of celebration called Scottish Week.

Many towns and villages throughout Scotland held events.

In the UK only Peterhead, Aberdeenshire still celebrate it as do New York in America.

Uptake by local authorities of a “Scottish Week” Gala was slow but initially 10 places throughout Scotland decided to take up the challenge to promote the country by hosting a programme of events.

Those first ten Scottish Weeks, due to take place in the summer of 1962, were Arbroath, Coupar, Dunfermline, Rothsay, Gourock, Peterhead, Portsoy, Edinburgh, Skye and Stranraer.


Scottish Week Peterhead continues to be one of the top galas in Scotland; a benchmark for others to follow.

The crowds are bigger at events despite opposition from the weather.

The original purpose of the committee back in 1962 was to encourage locals, businesses and tourists to make it thee week to be in Peterhead – the same purpose is the desire of the committee today.
