The Pagan Federation (Scotland) is a democratic organisation whose membership is drawn from all the Pagan traditions including Wicca and other forms of Pagan Witchcraft, Druidry, Heathenry, Celtic Paganism, Shamanism and Goddess-Spirituality. It is an autonomous national body within the Pagan Federation, Europe’s largest and most active Pagan organisation. Paganism is a spiritual way of life which has its roots in the ancient nature religions of the world. It is principally rooted in the old religions of Europe, though some adherents also find great worth in the indigenous beliefs of other continents.

The Pagan Federation (Scotland) provides accurate, factual information on modern Paganism to government, NGOs, civic society, the media and the general public. It works to defend Paganism from defamation, strives to protect Pagans from religious discrimination, and campaigns for equality of respect alongside the other religions of this country. In all its endeavours, Scottish PF promotes factual accuracy about Paganism, and works towards the goals of tolerance, respect and mutual understanding.

The Pagan Federation (Scotland) provides a range of other services. It maintains a register to assist those seeking reputable Pagan Celebrants to officiate at namings, handfastings, funerals and other rites of passage. Most of these celebrants are also able to perform legal religious marriage ceremonies. Scottish PF also organises a very popular annual national Conference to bring Pagans of all paths together to celebrate the diversity and vitality of our community. Scottish PF publishes a newsletter – SPIN – for members in Scotland and helps to publicise the growing number of moots and other Pagan events in this country. It helps members to meet like-minded people through a system of local contact lists, and provides basic information on Paganism and suggestions for further study to inquirers.
