The Scotland Hour Team are delighted to start 2023 by celebrating Burns Night and our national bard. The first #ScotlandHour of the year conveniently falls on the 25th of January: Burns Night, so we thought we would hold a twitter Burns party in celebration.
We are in good company too with Scotland Is Now aka @Scotland supporting us and also wanting to share the love of our national bard with a worldwide audience. Burns travelled across Scotland in his lifetime but the South of Scotland was home to him and we are again delighted that Discover South Scotland aka @HereScotland are also guest hosting.
Hashtags for tonight are #ScotlandHour #BurnsNight #ScotlandIsNow
