About Us

About Bloody Scotland

All about the festival’s beginnings, who we are and what we do. Bloody Scotland established itself at Scotland’s International Crime Writing Festival in 2012 with Lin Anderson and Alex Gray at the helm.

Booking Information

There are several of ways to buy tickets for the festival – online, over the phone, or in person, before and during the festival (unless we sell out!). We also offer discounted tickets for local Stirling residents and those on low income.


Stirling is one of the most picturesque and historically fascinating towns in Scotland so you won’t be short of sights to see and treats to consume in between Bloody Scotland events…


We are committed to making Bloody Scotland accessible to all and do our best to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable time with us. Have a look at what facilities our venues offer and where you may need to let us know ahead of time with any of your needs.
