Looking back at what has been a wild year, it’s difficult to imagine that 2022 will be able to match 2021 for big events.
Take a look back at just some of the highlights from this year.
1. Scottish elections

2. Kenmure Street
Perhaps the biggest story in Glasgow in 2021 - in a year which saw the city host COP26 - was the Kenmure Street protest. In May, crowds gathered around an immigration van after two men were removed from their flat. What started out as a small, unplanned protest grew into something more powerful, as hundreds of Glaswegians surrounded the van - with one evening shuffling underneath it - to prevent it from leaving. In a battle between the protesters and police, it was the former who won out. The two men were released to cheers. Photo: Jeff J Mitchell
3. Rangers win title '55'
Rangers achieved what seemed impossible just a few years ago and put a stop to Celtic's hopes of reaching a record-breaking 10 Scottish titles in a row. Rangers fans were, unsurprisingly, just a tad happy at claiming their 55th title. Photo: Getty
4. Euro 2020
In June, Scotland played their first game at a major international tournament since World Cup 1998. Despite being knocked out at the group stages it was a huge moment for many Scots - including a generation who had never seen the Tartan Army at a tournament. Photo: Getty
