Scots in Qatar exist not only to promote Scottish culture and maintain the enjoyment of Scottish hospitality, but pride ourselves in supporting Charities. We hope that all our patrons will continue to support us and the Charities we feel deserve our attention..
As well as having a great Scottish night out, by attending our events, you are helping us to support charities both here in Qatar and back home in Scotland.
