Abstract. The article examines the problem of the Scottish emigration to Poland in the XVI-XVII centuries. In this period, Poland was a popular destination among the Scots. In the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, they were engaged in trade and offered their services to the Polish Monarchy as highly demanded mercenaries. According to historiographers, religious tolerance of the Polish society was a basic factor influencing the Scottish Protestants’ decision to settle in Poland. But this was not always the case. Relying on documentary materials, the paper describes the shift in tolerant attitude towards the Dissidents-Scots in the Polish society of the XVII century and the Scots’ attempts to counteract this trend.
