Bank Holidays in Scotland in 2023

Scotland's public holidays differ slightly from the rest of the UK. For instance, Scots enjoy an extra day to recover from Hogmany (New Year), but they don't observe Easter Monday. Whether or not Scotland's National Day (St. Andrew's Day) is a public holiday, is a matter for discussion. On Scottish specific bank holidays, banks will open and close on English bank holidays. Some councils within Scotland may also observe different bank holidays, but these do not normally affect businesses.
