The Scottish Society of Charleston has been dedicated to spreading our unique Scottish heritage throughout the Low Country since 1971. Since our founding year, we have worked to preserve Scottish customs such as ceilidhs, Burn’s Night Suppers, and the Scottish Games, sponsoring a Scottish pipe band, and awarding scholarships in piping, drumming, and dancing.
Support the Charleston Community
