The SDC run a wide range of events across the year, from socials to rideouts and weekenders.  Check out the events page for a full schedule.


The Scottish Ducati Club was formed in early 2008. Up to that point, if you were a Ducati enthusiast in Scotland you were dependant on the UK owners’ clubs to organise events.

Unfortunately these events took place far down south, with little activity in the northern half of the UK, which is still the case today.

Frustrated at this state of affairs, a small band of northern Ducati enthusiasts formed the online Ducati community of, which quickly became hugely popular from Leeds and Manchester northwards.

Much of the activity was in Scotland and so it was a logical step to form a Scottish Ducati Club affiliated to the factory in Bologna. The Scottish Ducati Club became an official part of the worldwide family of Desmo owners’ clubs in 2008.

Initial fears that the club would not attract members were quickly dispelled and the membership has continued to grow steadily with over 350 members in 2011. Participation levels are high at the many regular events, both rideouts and socials.

We have monthly rideouts, social meetings, attend various events, organise a Ducati only Tracknight and hold two annual weekend meetings, the Highland Fling in May and the Midgie Masher in August. Three members attended the first Highland Fling and six attended the first Midgie Masher. In 2011 over 30 attended the Highland Fling and over 80 are due to attend the Midgie Masher.

We are a friendly and sociable club of Ducati enthusiasts, operating with the minimum of formality and the maximum of enjoyment in our passion for Ducatis. Whether your interest is in racing events, rideouts, classics or just the social aspect of meeting up with friendly fellow enthusiasts it does not matter – if you love Ducati then the Scottish Ducati Club is the only club in Scotland where you will find what you need.

The main aim of the club is to encourage an active community of Ducati enthusiasts in Scotland, based upon an informal, sociable and democratic approach. It is a club run by the members for the members. We are still evolving and are always welcome new ideas and constructive suggestions.
