When is the Coca-Cola Christmas truck coming to Scotland?

The truck will be starting north of the border this week, on Friday November 15 and Saturday November 16.

That’s one day less than last year when there were three Scottish dates on the tour.

Where will it be stopping?

Only one Scottish city will benefit from free coke this year, and that is the capital city of Edinburgh. Glasgow has been snubbed entirely, despite hosting the truck at both Silverburn Centre and Tesco Extra in Rutherglen last year. Edinburgh is one of 19 stops along the way, with the month-long tour stopping at London’s O2 Arena on Sunday December 15.
