Scottish love affair with Puerto Pollensa

Scotland has been connected to Puerto Pollença as a tourist destination for nearly 50 years.

Scots have been visiting Pollença since the swinging 60s due to its family friendly environment.

Visiting Pollença allowed scots to avoid cold at home and enjoy gentle weather instead.

Sport features strongly in Puerto Pollença with triathlon and Ironman courses, although cycling holidays are becoming more and more popular throughout the year.

Scots also enjoy the festivals in Pollença with the first fiesta of the year taking place over January 16 and 17.

On the first day, bonfires are lit and traditional songs are sung in celebration of San Anton, the patron saint of animals.

Every July and August attracts some big names for the Pollença Music Festival.

Scottish visitors to Pollença will enjoy several restaurants and cafes beside the tree-lined walk which offers superb photo ops.

Many tourists to Pollença prefer to keep their holiday location as their hotel swimming pool, going out to markets only to buy stuff from supermarkets. Many spend their time eating out and lying on the beach and participating in sporting and leisure activities.

You can also see kids from across the world playing football on the beaches until its dark and then heading one to one of the nightclubs.

With the Scottish visitors over the years, it’s hardly surprising that there are several scottish owned businesses in Pollença. E.g. Trios restaurant is owned by Juan and Catherine, who moved there over 30 years ago.

Laguna Bar & Restaurant is also owned by Scots, Jim a
nd Judy MacSorley, whose star visitor so far has been Jim’s cousin Gerard Butler.

Angie at El Posito is a Glaswegian. Ruta del Tapeo – Tapas Route –is run by Scot Denise Marti.

With several Scots and English on the Island, language is also not a major constraint.

British residents in the north of Majorca can read Talk of the North, which is a fortnightly free newspaper in Pollença and is distributed in Puerto Pollença, Alcudia, Puerto Alcudia, Playa de Muro and Can Picafort.
