The Scots who went to Asia were mostly sojourners, intent on eventually returning home to Scotland. This had a direct impact on the development of Scottish ethnic associations there. Benevolence played little part in undertakings, with activities instead centred on the provision of large-scale annual balls, especially in Shanghai and Hong Kong. Another notable characteristic for Asia is that, as a result of Asian Scots’ mobility there, their general transience, many were members of several societies in different cities.
