“See you after the Bells” This uniquely Scottish phrase means we’ll celebrate the new year with you. We see the new year in with the Bells and at the first chime of the new year we sing Auld Lang Syne and probably Oh Flower of Scotland too. But Hogmany in Scotland is a real treat….

Who was St Andrew?
In 832 AD Andrew is said to have appeared in a vision to a Pictish king the night before a battle against the Northumbrians in what is now the village of Athelstaneford in East Lothian. On the day of the battle a Saltire, an X-shaped cross, appeared in the sky above the battlefield and the Picts were victorious.
The Saltire, or Saint Andrew’s Cross, was subsequently adopted as the national emblem and flag of the Scots.
