Welcome to the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland's special campaign site. It has been set up as an online focal point for the Order's campaign against separation in the forthcoming independence referendum in 2014

It will come as no surprise to most that the Orange Order in Scotland is fervently opposed to the break-up of the United Kingdom. Ever since the first Orange lodges were constituted in Scotland in 1797, we have been committed to a United Kingdom, headed by a constitutional Monarchy.

We are primarily a Christian and charitable fraternal organisation, we rarely step into the political arena. After all, the Orange Order is composed of men and women across Scotland with varying political ideas and opinions. However, the Union and remaining British, is a matter that unites us all.

We have a willing and vast membership, and we want to hear from you. If you think that you can help, or have any ideas, please don't hesitate to leave your details via the contacts page.

I remain convinced that with your help, the Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland can help ensure that we remain "British Together".

- Henry Dunbar, Grand Master
