To celebrate St Andrew’s Day 2016 and our love of all things Andrew (our patron saint, our world number one tennis player…), we’ve been out scouting for people named Andrew to bring to Scotland.
A kilted VisitScotland crew plus a piper scoured the streets in Berlin, Paris, Dublin and London to find Andrews, and all variations of the name, both male and female, from Andrea to Andrei.
Once we’d tracked down 21 of them, we put them all on a bus and brought them to Scotland, to the town of the same name – St Andrews – to experience the true spirit of St Andrew’s Day, our national day.
As special guests of the nation, the Andrews took part in their very own Highland games on West Sands Beach, had the chance to learn piping, test their golfing skills and even try their hand at land yachting. Getting further into the party spirit, the Andrews took part in the world’s largest St Andrew’s Day Ceilidh, impressing the whole of St Andrews with their aptitude for Strip the Willow!
