About Us

The Society of St Andrew of Scotland (Qld) Limited is Queensland's Scottish society that welcomes all Scots, those with Scottish ancestry those who enjoy Scottish culture, music, dancing and having fun. There are a few kilt-wearing Scots amongst us but it is truly an international gathering. There are so many Scottish customs and traditions that only a few can be mentioned in this cultural introduction.

Words that conjure up the vision and the life of Scotland include Haggis, Shortbread, Salmon, Venison, Scotch Broth, Kilts, Tartan, Highland Games and the world famous Bagpipes. Read More on Scottish Culture
