About Bloody Scotland: Gala Opening, McIlvanney Prize and Torchlight Procession

Bloody Scotland 2017 opens in the magnificent splendour of the Great Hall of Stirling Castle with a truly unique event that offers you the chance to rub shoulders with some of the biggest names in crime fiction.

Your golden ticket (£20) allows you to enjoy a glass or two of fizz in historic surroundings while we launch the Bloody Scotland anthology of new short stories in conjunction with Historic Environment Scotland and announce the winner of the prestigious McIlvanney Prize for Scottish crime book of the year. Following the announcement you can then collect, if you so wish, your flaming torch on the castle esplanade and take your place in a once-in-a-lifetime procession of authors and readers, winding its way through Stirling’s old town to the Albert Halls for the Rebus event. (£20 ticket does not include access to the Rebus event.)

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Bloody Scotland: Gala Opening, McIlvanney Prize and Torchlight Procession are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
