Hello friends,

It may not come as a surprise but we’re very sad to announce that Bloody Scotland will not be taking place in Stirling this year due to the global Coronavirus pandemic. The safety of our team, participants and audiences is paramount and even if social distancing restrictions are lifted by September, we feel we cannot proceed as normal without knowing safety can be absolutely assured.

Though we will greatly miss celebrating the finest local and international crime writing at the festival, we hope to bring you a wee taste of that classic Bloody Scotland atmosphere in the form of online events which we are currently in the process of plotting. More about that will be announced on a later date so make sure you’re following us on all the usual channels and join the mailing list for the latest updates.

Until then, please stay home and stay safe.

All the very best from the Bloody Scotland team.

If you have any questions please send them through to info@bloodyscotland.com

Dates for Bloody Scotland 2021 are currently scheduled as 17 – 19 September, should circumstances deem it possible closer to the time.
