Scots will get the chance to make their mark on the Commonwealth Games as a nationwide Legacy 2014 tour gets underway today.

Travelling the length and breadth of the country, the Your Legacy 2014 tour will capture the enthusiasm and spirit of the Scottish people and highlight the benefits already being felt in Scottish communities.

It will take a unique snapshot of the country’s hopes for a lasting legacy with people getting their picture taken and leaving their personal wish of what the Games will bring to Scotland.

Visiting the first tour stop in Shetland, Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport Shona Robison said:

“The Games coming to Scotland provides an exceptional opportunity to make our nation healthier, help our businesses to prosper and celebrate our modern and vibrant culture both at home and on the world stage. It’s not just about the elite athletes, it’s about individuals too and I hope people use this tour as an opportunity to be part of the excitement.

“The tour will make its way across the country over the next four weeks, bringing the spirit of the Games to every corner of the nation and highlighting the impact being felt in communities across Scotland. We want people to find out more about the benefits already being felt in their area and tell us their hopes for what the Games will bring.”
