Catalan and Scottish Friendship Association

Bringing Scotland to Catalonia

About us

Home
Home

We are a group of Scots and Catalans living in Catalonia who would like to share news and information about Scotland’s culture, society and geography whilst making friendships and links between members of both communities. In July 2016 we met at the renowned Pitarra restaurant in Barcelona to discuss ideas and agree on the statutes of our association and it was there that the seeds were sown for the founding of this association.

We are a non-profit association, apolitical and non-denominational where anyone who is curious and wants to know more about this small yet fascinating country is welcome to participate. Scotland is a nation rich in heritage and legend which we hope to help others discover and demystify via entertaining and diverse activities, projects and proposals from our members and collaborators.
