…and experience Scotland’s rich cultural heritage in a most uplifting way!
If you have a love for music, want to stretch your singing ability – or even discover if you have any, a singing holiday is a perfect way to do so in a beautiful location. As with all arts, joining in and doing allows for an even richer and more authentic travel experience than just looking or listening. We’ve created opportunities for you to explore your own voice and increase your confidence in singing, and at the same time learn about Scotland’s rich and varied musical heritage, with guidance from some of the best Scottish folk singers. No previous experience is required, only curiosity and an open mind.
When people sing together there is an increased sense of community, belonging and shared endeavour.
As our tutors guide you through a selection of traditional songs and the stories behind them, expect to fall in love with singing, or for it to touch you deeply. The health benefits to singing are proven. According to research by the University of London singing has both physical and psychological benefits.
Travel is really special when you’re sharing music with people.
Scots Song is deeply rooted in tradition and has given voice to Scots speakers, singers and songwriters from many walks of life and areas of the country. The types of song vary greatly and range from work songs and songs of the war, to songs of love and courting. A repertoire of new songs is the best souvenir one can take home from their travels.

Please note: To help our business recover from the covid crisis we’ve decided not to run a singing holiday in 2022 as singing is a new addition to our programme and we have to focus on our more established activities for now. We’d love to offer Scottish singing experiences in the future though – so if you would like to register your interest, just drop us a line. You may even have ideas where and how we can reach Scotland-loving singing enthusiasts all over the world! Any ideas and suggestions would be much appreciated.
For those who have already booked their accommodation in Edinburgh or plan to visit family or friends during this time we may put on a non-residential version of the Come Gie’s a Sang workshop with Robyn nearer the time, providing there are spaces left. Sign up for our newsletter so we can keep you informed.
