Public Holidays in Scotland

If you plan to visit Scotland, don't forget to think about the dates of the Scottish public or bank holidays.

Traditionally, many shops and services in Scottish towns and cities will tend to run a 'weekend' type service on bank holidays. However, most government institutions will remain closed on these days. Note that additional public holidays are granted at Christmas & New Year if Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Years Day falls on a weekend. See below for the full list of national holidays in Scotland.
