BearScots Weekend Edinburgh 2021
BearScots is a Scottish gay men’s group. We hold monthly bear events in Glasgow and Edinburgh and host the annual ‘BearScotFest’ in September.
Come join the bears for their annual gathering in Edinburgh.
Kick off with our Early-Bird Welcome Social at The Regent Bar on Thursday evening. Catch up with old friends, and make new ones in this cosy neighbourhood bar.
Saturday Brunch is served at CC Blooms from 1200 hrs, giving you ample time to pick up those last minute registrations or beary merchandise and then you have a few afternoon optional add-on activites to choose from:
Take a splash at Bearscots’ now (in)famous Wet Fur Pool Party in the beautiful Victorian grandeur of Glenogle Baths For the more genteel and demure amongst us, enjoy a sumptuous afternoon tea at Mimi’s Bakehouse on Leith’s Waterfront.
Saturday night is the highlight of the weekend as we party in the Caves, deep in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. This stunning atmospheric venue is located on several levels each with its own bar space. The adjoining Rowantree Bar is a welcome oasis with comfy seats and lounge-style music. As the night comes to a close, ”say aye tae a Bearscots pie” as traditional sustenance for your walk home!
Sunday brunch at the quirky and friendly Nom de Plume Cafe in the heart of the gay village will revitalises you in time for our lively Sunday afternoon show at The Jam House. Once again, we welcome the glamorous and lovable Bella and the Bear who play host to the afternoon’s activities and our special guest is Scotland’s own star of “Live at the Apollo”, Comedy Central UK and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Larry Dean. The afternoon includes group karaoke, and of course our Mr Bearscots competition.

All the bars and clubs are in easy walking distance. The city has more in common with European cities than other cities in the UK so around the city is a cafe culture.
