The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee next year after 70 years on the throne. 

To mark the occasion, a special four day bank holiday has been announced, with workers and school pupils getting the Thursday and Friday off. 

However, with bank holidays a devolved matter in Scotland, will the country get the extra holidays like England, Wales and Northern Ireland?

Here's what you need to know... 

Will Scotland get a four day weekend for the Queen's Jubilee?

Fortunately for Scots, the four day bank holiday IS scheduled in Scotland for spring next year. 

Nicola Sturgeon confirmed that the late May bank holiday will be moved to early June so Scotland can celebrate with the rest of the UK. 

It means that in all four nations, Thursday June 2 will mark the spring bank holiday while Friday June 3 will celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. 

Back in 2011, the whole of the UK got a bank holiday to mark the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton, the future King and Queen. 

When is Scotland's next bank holiday?

Scotland's next bank holiday is scheduled for St Andrews day on Tuesday November 30. 

They come pretty thick and fast after this date, with December 27 and 28 replacing Christmas and Boxing day which takes place on the weekend this year. 

One week later people can enjoy January 3 and 4 as the replacement days for New Year's Day and January 2. 

How will the nation celebrate the Platinum Jubilee?

There will be an equestrian display of horses from all over the world in a nod to the Queen's love of horses. 

Titled A Gallop Through History, the show will feature hundreds of horses and thousands dancers and musicians. 

It is being publicised by Dame Helen Mirren and Stephen Fry and will be staged over four nights at Windsor Castle. 

Numerous television shows, documentaries and tributes will also flood the schedule in honour of her Majesty.
