Scotland’s Year of Stories – Parliamentary Reception

Lyn Brown, STGA Chair, and Gillian Barrett, Association Manager, attended the Year of Stories Parliamentary Reception on Wednesday 14 December. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate stories inspired by, written, or created in Scotland.

As tourist guides, storytelling is at the heart of what we do. STGA guides have been engaging, inspiring, and connecting with visitors and locals alike through storytelling for more than 60 years.

“Stories are a vital part of Scotland’s culture and every community has a different tale to tell. Shared stories, whether spoken, written, sung or filmed are what give a sense of place, history and belonging.” – VisitScotland
