Dubai Caledonian Society – Association of the people of Scotland

The Dubai Caledonian Society was founded more than 30 years ago with the goals of preserving and promoting the unique and exciting culture that Scotland and the Scots bring to every country they visit and live in.

The main aims of the Dubai Caledonian Society are to bring to Dubai and the UAE a taste of Scotland, to encourage multi national ties in both business and social arenas and to raise funds for charities both in Scotland, the UAE and elsewhere.

The Society welcomes everyone of Scots descent as well as those who have a strong interest in, or close connection with Scotland.

Socialising has had a special place in the hearts of all Scots, and we expect to provide a focal point, through the Society’s events, for all Scots men and women to gather and celebrate our proud heritage.

The Scots tradition of generosity is enhanced, through our society, with the proceeds from our events being donated to various charities, both Scottish and to local causes, throughout the year.

We positively encourage members to nominate deserving cases that are worthy of our support.

The Society expects to organise a number of regular gatherings throughout the year, which will bring together Scots and their guests in a friendly informal fashion. Some of these events have a specific, traditional Scottish feel, such as the St Andrews’ Ball and the Burns’ Supper. We also create events around simply having good old-fashioned fun, such as our legendary ceilidhs and camping trips
