Your Community

Find out what's happening in your local community

Dubai is renowned for many things: the year round sunshine being the most obvious. It is also known for being a transient place and people come and go all the time. As the years have passed, more and more people are calling Dubai home on a permanent basis. Whether you are here for the short term, or if you’re in it for the long haul, we are here to make your time in Dubai more enjoyable.

Please do visit our events calendar to find out more about the various gathering that we organise. We are a friendly bunch!

The expat community in Dubai is thriving and we encourage you to get involved in the various activities around town. If you have a community event that you’d like us to publicise, please send us a message and we will add you to our events calendar.  If you are interested in getting a team together with other fellow Scots for a sporting or other community event, we can help you do so under the Association banner.

Whilst we cannot help you out with legal advice or with the authorities, we are happy to point you in the right direction if you need some assistance. If you are new to Dubai, we understand that finding your feet here can be a little bit daunting. You will be made to feel very welcome at any of our events and socialising and making friends certainly helps you settle in faster.

On this page, you will find some helpful links that might ease your transition into Dubai life.

If you’d like to list your company here, please drop us a line via our Contact page. A prize or small donation to cover admin of running the Association is required. Thank you. Please note that we are unable to promote community events that conflict or clash with our own events. Thank you for your understanding.
