The Ulster-Scots Community Network

The Ulster-Scots Community Network aims to preserve, promote & develop all aspects of Ulster-Scots heritage & culture

As a representative umbrella organisation with over 400 member groups, we are committed to representing the interests of those who engage in a variety of Ulster-Scots activities.


At its shortest point, the crossing between Ulster and Scotland is only twelve miles, a journey which many people have been taking for centuries

This short distance has led to a history and culture that has developed together over many years. Discover your heritage and find out more.
