The Scottish Flag  Scottish Village

Welcome! (Walcome / Welcum)

Ah, Scotland…from glen to glen, your lands speak to our hearts and call us back to you! Ancient castles nestled amidst majestic mountains and breathtaking heritage sites that erupt with a rich and turbulent history. The wild and rugged Highlands give way to the breath-taking coastline, and beyond, to Scotland’s remote and captivating isles.

This romantic, heather-hued, and poetic back-drop exists alongside a vibrant and youthful atmosphere alive with music, art and dance. To experience Scotland is to partake in a fast-paced ceilidh (party), to sample the elusive melt-in-your-mouth haggis or to share a pint with friends.

Cead Mile Failte (A Hundred Thousand Welcomes) to the Scottish Village hosted by the Brantford Pipes & Drums. The local Pipes & Drums serve up a night of traditional and contemporary Scottish entertainment to celebrate the legendary warmth of the down-to-earth Scots. Whether you are Scottish born or Scottish at heart, young or young at heart, you will find delight in the offerings of the Scottish Village.

Come on in and enjoy traditional fare from our kitchen, imported treats and unique beverages. Clap your hands to the soulstirring sounds of the Great Highland bagpipes, stomp your feet to the fastpaced fiddle, delight in the twirls of our Highland Dancers or relax to the lull of Celtic melodies.

Step into the warmth of Scotland, if only for a moment. Cead Mile Failte! Welcome to our life!
