ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Scottish crime fiction is amongst the best in the world. It is the most popular genre amongst Scottish readers, both in bookshops and in libraries. It generates countless screen adaptations. And yet at present none of our 40-plus literature festivals celebrates it.
Stirling is the natural location for a major new festival, with easy access from Edinburgh and Glasgow and also nearby Falkirk, Linlithgow, and Perth.
Bloody Scotland seeks to build on the existing strengths of Stirling’s own successful Off the Page festival … and to forge something new.
