The patron saint of Scotland, St Andrew was known for being strong, sociable and fair. Characteristics that Scots are proud to stand for, they celebrate St Andrew’s Day with acts of kindness and good deeds on the 30th November each year.
Whether you’re dancing a ceilidh, hiking around Loch Lomond or just knocking up some tatties and neeps, it’s a day to enjoy all things tartan. Plus as an official holiday, you get the day off work if you’re north of the border.
To join the celebration, we visited three thriving Scottish businesses: The Good Spirits Company, Alex McDougall Mowers and Highland Wi-Fi. All three businesses have been able to go further after taking loans through Funding Circle.
In this video you’ll meet Calum, Alex & Shirley and Matthew. They talk about why they’re proud to be a Scottish business and how support from Funding Circle has helped them achieve their business goals.
