Since 2012 Visit Scotland has been highlighting the very best features of this country through the now popular “themed years”. After all, from its history to its culture, nature, people and produce Scotland truly is full of gems to discover. After the success of the Year of Young People in 2018, the spotlight will now be on coasts and waters for the entirety of 2020. Through a wide range of different events we will celebrate how the planet’s most essential natural resource is used in this country. Scenic lochs and stunning beaches are just the beginning. Water is everywhere, so from rivers and burns to whisky and broths, join the online community in celebrating #YCW2020.
