Scotland's Year of Stories

2022 is Scotland’s Year of Stories and East Lothian is joining the celebration of stories inspired by, written, or created in Scotland.

Visit East Lothian and immerse yourself in history, hear fascinating local tales, discover locations that have inspired writers and filmmakers and meet the people who have made and continue to make this such a great place to live, work and visit.

Scotland’s Year of Stories will also feature exciting events across the county. Keep a lookout for new East Lothian event announcements here throughout the year.

Share your stories using #EastLothian #TalesOfScotland – we’d love to see them!
