The town of Teba has a close relationship with Scotland, rooted in a history that goes back to the Middle Ages. The Scottish Days commemorate the exploits of the Scot Sir James Douglas who (while carrying the embalmed heart of the King of Scotland, Robert the Bruce) participated in the conquest of Castillo de la Estrella, which was in Muslim hands. The Scot fought alongside the Castilian troops of King Alfonso XI and died in the battle.
The festival recreates a medieval atmosphere with markets, cultural and recreational activities, shows, parades, tastings of traditional cuisine and Celtic music from the Scottish Pipers Group of Gibraltar and the Municipal Band of Teba.
In addition, numerous people and associations collaborate in the organization of this festival, including the St. Andrew"s Society of Gibraltar, the Order of Knights Templar of St Michael and the Strathleven Artizans, who travel from Scotland specifically to participate in the event.
