The Year in Review

Inspired by the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns, Homecoming Scotland 2009 extended an invitation to Scotland’s people at home and abroad to reconnect with our great country. Throughout the year and across the country, more than 400 events provided a special Homecoming welcome.  

Everyone was invited to join the Homecoming celebrations for Burns and some of Scotland’s many great contributions to the world including: whisky, golf, great minds and innovations, and our rich ancestry, culture and heritage.

In this section, we take a look at some of the events across the year.
