Support in Great Britain

There is a persistent and popular Ulster loyalist tradition in Scotland originating with large-scale Ulster Protestant immigration during the industrial revolution. Shared involvement in loyalist bands and the loyal orders provides the opportunity for regular contact with Ulster loyalists and unionists at marches and parades in both Scotland and Ireland. Scottish bands and lodges often develop a special relationship with a band or lodge in Northern Ireland and exchange visits. This page lists directly political Scottish loyalist sites but Scottish bands and loyal order sites are listed separately on the webpages for Bands and Loyal Orders.

Ulster loyalism in England and Wales is a different matter. There is a persistent Orange tradition in a few key locations, notably in Liverpool, but online support for Ulster loyalism and unionism in England and Wales is dominated by the British far-right. Online contact has facilitated regular visits to Northern Ireland by loyalist sympathisers from Great Britain and over the past few years the British Ulster Alliance has organised a number of trips to Protestant interface areas in Northern Ireland.
