COSCA has researched and compiled a new directory of over 1000 Scottish Heritage societies and Highland Games associations in the United States. The organizations are listed by region and state and include clan societies, Scottish dance groups, pipe bands, historical societies, as well as Scottish highland games.
Each individual listing includes the group’s website link, Facebook page, whether they produce any highland games, and the mission.
