The Kingdom of Bahrain — a name that translates as “Two Seas”—is actually an archipelago of 33 low-lying islands located in the heart of the Arabian Gulf. Situated along major Arabian and international trade routes between Asia and the West, the Kingdom has, for millennia, served as an important port and center of business. The capital city of Manama is a vibrant cosmopolitan center offering an open economy and an educated workforce enhanced by modern cultural amenities like museums, shopping, restaurants and fine hotels.

Arabic is the official language of Bahrain, but English, Farsi, Hindi, and Urdu are spoken widely. Most notably, English is considered the official language for business in Bahrain.

Scots have a strong presence here, and  is fair ta'en wi bein' able tae help promote Bahrain-Scottish links to their Groups and Societies...

           The Caledonian Society, Awali was founded in 1936 and has been holding various functions annually since then.  Our two major functions are the Saint Andrew's Night Ball at the end of November, and the Burns Night on or around 25th January.

The Burns Night of the Caledonian Society, Awali is always a traditional evening with haggis on the menu, poetry and song.  As 2009 is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Scotland 's world-famous poet, Robert Burns, we celebrated with high-profile speakers and entertainers.  The main speaker, who proposed " The Immortal Memory", was George Jack, Retired Head of Selkirk High School and Past President of the Scottish Rugby Union; also, Alan Sword, Managing Director & Head of Corporate Finance, at the Arab Banking Corporation delivered the "Toast to the Lassies", the reply being given by Bahrain resident, Carol Melrose. Other speeches were made by members of the Caledonian Society, Awali.
