Scottish Bank Holidays
The date of the next Scottish Bank Holiday is 25 May 2015 (Spring).
Scottish bank holidays include two days that are not celebrated across the rest of the United Kingdom, 2nd January and St Andrew's Day (30th November). The Scottish summer bank holiday remained as the first Monday in August, one of the originally defined Bank Holidays from the 1871 Act of Parliament, when the rest of the United Kingdom changed the summer bank holiday to the 31st August.

- * Indicates a substitute day - A substitute day occurs when a public or bank holiday occurs on a Saturday, Sunday or a Bank Holiday. In these cases the substitute day occurs, normally the following Monday. In the case of two consecutive holidays (e.g. Christmas Day and Boxing Day) this can be the following Tuesday if the holidays fall on the Saturday and Sunday.
- Bank Holidays that never fall on a weekend (e.g Good Friday, Easter Monday) will never have substitute days
