To celebrate Scotland’s famous heritage, hospitality and culture and to put the spotlight on Scotland’s National Day, the Fife Tourism Partnership are inviting everyone across Scotland to upload their kilted photographs to either Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, using the hashtag: #GetYerKiltOn
Selected images will be shared on the Welcome to Fife social media channels on the run up to the event and a prize of a beautiful glass kilt pictured below made by Keny Drew at East Neuk Glass will be awarded to the person who uploads the best photograph!
Locals and tourists are also being encouraged to attend the exciting events which are taking place in the town of St Andrews this year to celebrate St Andrew’s Day, 30th of November, which will include a Guinness World Record attempt to host the world’s largest ceilidh, a torch parade and huge fireworks display.
Commenting on the celebrations to mark Scotland’s National Day, Ann Camus, Fife Tourism Partnership Manager, said: “We are incredibly excited to be part of something special which raises awareness of St. Andrews Day in style. Tourism in Fife, and Scotland as a whole, continues to prosper year on year which is reassuring to see in a continually changing economic climate.
I would encourage everyone to #GetYerKiltOn and come and join us for a fantastic celebration.”
Provost of Fife, Jim Leishman, added:“St Andrew’s Day is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate Scotland’s vibrant, cultural offering. This national flagship event presents the perfect time for Scots to join in the fun and wear their kilts with pride.”
