Homecoming 2009: First Minister Salmond issues a worldwide invitation.

FIRST Minister Alex Salmond today called for Scots around the world to visit Scotland next year for the Homecoming 2009 celebration.
A nationwide events programme has been organised, inspired by the 250th anniversary of poet Robert Burns' birth.

A signature event will be The Gathering, one of the largest clan get togethers in Scotland.

Mr Salmond said at the event's launch today at Edinburgh Castle that there are almost 100 million Scots across the planet.

Over 100 events have been organised to celebrate Scotland's first year of Homecoming, with the First Minister launching an e-card to help spread the word.
