Year of Coasts and Waters 2020

Dive into Scotland in 2020 as we celebrate our spectacular coasts and waters.

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 or paddleboard, wild swimming in one of our famous lochs, savouring some delicious Scottish seafood, enjoying a warming single malt whisky or uncovering the secrets of a coastal fortress.

Plan your Year of Coasts and Waters trip now using the information below and our Year of Coasts and Waters Travel Guide and don't forget to share your adventures with us using #YCW2020.

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 and some events planned for 2020 may re-schedule to 2021. Further updates will follow.
