bloody scotland 2018

21 – 23 September, 2018


Bloody Scotland has established itself as the leading Scottish International Crime Writing Festival. It all started in 2012 with acclaimed writers Lin Anderson and Alex Gray at the helm, then joined by Craig Robertson and Gordon Brown. Based in Stirling, Bloody Scotland has brought hundreds of crime writers new and established to the stage with always enthusiastic attendees who add to the festival every bit as much as the writers do.

Bloody Scotland prides itself as the literary festival where you can let down your hair and enjoy a drink at the bar with your favourite crime writer, it strives to put on entertaining as well as informative events. The programme covers  a range of criminal subjects from fictional forensics, psychological thrillers, tartan noir, cosy crime and many more.

With an international focus at the heart of Bloody Scotland, the organisers are always looking to bring in crime writing talent from outside of Scotland,  whom you may not have heard about. Also drawing the crowds is the Scotland v England writers’ football match.

The Bloody Scotland Team 2018: Lin Anderson, Gordon Brown, Craig Robertson, Jenny Brown, Muriel Binnie, Catriona Reynolds, Bob McDevitt, Laura Jones, Abir Mukherjee, Fiona Brownlee & Tim Donald
