Ice-breaker / dinner

A gala dinner has been organised on the night of the 22nd. It will take place on HM Frigate Unicorn (http://www.frigateunicorn.org/), the world’s sixth oldest floating ship. After dinner, a ceilidh dance will be held on the ship, where delegates will learn (hopefully) some Scottish dances with live musical accompaniment.

Men often wear kilts at these dances. If you would like to wear a kilt to this event, we can arrange this for you – the cost will be around £40. Please contact Andrew Allan ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) directly for further details. We have organised kilts for international delegates to Dundee in the past and it has been extremely popular. We hope you’ll take this opportunity to try it.

Whisky tasting

On the night of 23rd September, we are hoping to arrange a whisky-tasting event. Details will be made available soon.Costs will unfortunately not be covered by the Registration Fee.

Accompanying Persons:

If delegates are intending to bring additional guests with them to Scotland, we would be happy to prepare an additional accompanying persons programme incorporating local attractions in Dundee, St. Andrews and the surrounding areas. Please contact Andrew Allan directly if you would be interested.

Saturday 25th September

If sufficient numbers of delegates will be staying for the weekend and would be interested in a trip into the Scottish mountains, we are happy to organise one. Please let Andrew know if this would be of interest.
