Year of Coasts and Waters 2020

In light of COVID-19, everyone's health and safety is the most important thing. This means despite the love and desire to share our friendly, passionate and unique country, we must ask everyone at this time not to travel to or around Scotland. Please stay safe everyone.  You can get the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 in Scotland at the Scottish Government website.

Water is the life-blood of our green and pleasant country. It's what makes the landscape so special and loved whether you're exploring the coastline by kayak, enjoying some delicious Scottish seafood or uncovering the secrets of a coastal fortress.

While you are not able to visit in person, do keep an eye on our website and social media channels for lots of inspiring #YCW2020 content celebrating our coasts and waters - our way of keeping you smiling through these difficult times.

Coasts and Waters Events

The events programme that was designed to celebrate the year is currently subject to cancellation and postponement in line with current COVID-19 government advice.
