With the majority of tourists heading to our shores throughout August, why not get out there and enjoy what the country has planned, to showcase its talent and international visitors!

We have selected a few events that you might be interested in, from horse racing, sports, music, art, literature, theatre, highland games, science and much more, just select your area below to find out more. Events listed have been checked for accessibility.

All areas have a list page linked but please check individually with events for accessible information. Euans Guide is a great source of information on venues across Scotland and if you visit somewhere and want to leave a review to help others in the future please do.


So whatever you choose to do this August, pack some sun cream and an umbrella if outdoors, it is Scotland, and enjoy the festivities.

It was lovely to put this guide together to see the diverse events on offer but found it difficult to ascertain the level of accessibility for some events without further investigation. If only event planners and co-ordinators clearly advertised the facilities life would be so much easier and their events fuller!
