Scotland's crime writing festival Bloody Scotland returns!
Based in Stirling, Bloody Scotland has brought hundreds of new and established crime writers to the stage since it started in 2012.
Among this year's highlights are the annual (and always entertaining!) Scotland vs England crime writers' football match, festival favourite Val McDermid and Trainspotting writer Irvine Welsh.
Where to stay?
Stirling Youth Hostel is a great base to enjoy this two day event and all that Stirling has to offer!
