  • January – Tobias Smollett becomes the first editor of The Critical Review, published in Edinburgh.
  • 14 December – Rev. John Home's blank verse tragedy Douglas is performed for the first time, in Edinburgh, with considerable success, in spite of the opposition of the local church presbytery, who summon Rev. Alexander Carlyle to answer for having attended its representation;[5] however, it fails in its early promise to set up a new Scottish dramatic tradition.
