The legacy of Glasgow 2014 could bring a touch of the Bahamas to the Forfar bridie.
A number of unlikely friendships will be formed between Courier country and the Commonwealth as part of a new initiative.
They may be worlds apart in both distance and climate, but St Lucia could be mentioned in the same breath as St Fillans, while Falkand in Fife will become better acquainted with the Falkands in the South Atlantic.
Councils across Scotland have been matched up with a number of exotic destinations as part of the Support a 2nd Team initiative by sportscotland, which aims to develop links with Commonwealth regions in the run-up to next year’s games.
Local partners are being urged to get behind their chosen countries and territories and cheer them on.
In Angus, plans are already in place for schools to explore the culture of its three partner areas Anguilla, the Maldives and Gilbraltar. They will embrace the theme by choosing any country in the Commonwealth to include in their core work.
As well as learning about their chosen country’s history, geography and culture, they will also take part in a series of themed sports events.
Kirriemuir councillor Jeanette Gaul, who is on Angus Council’s Commonwealth committee, revealed what is in store for the next 12 months.
“We are hoping to create a legacy that will last beyond the games and allow children to find out about the various cultures of these places,” she said.
“I know we have some shooting competitors coming over from Gibraltar, but things are still at an early stage.
“There will be quite a few things on the go across the county and just now we are planning exactly what will be going on next year and moving things forward.”
A Celebrate Fund has been set up to offer grants of up to £10,000 for games activities held by local groups or schools.
Angus will have another key role in Glasgow 2014, as the Barry Buddon shooting range will play host to four events.
This will be the second time the military base has been at the centre of the Commonwealth Games, as the full-bore rifle contest took place there in 1986.

He revealed that the Queen’s Baton Relay will provide an ideal opportunity to feature music and dance, or other cultural elements from its paired countries of Zambia, Vanuatu and Malta.
Perth and Kinross Council also confirmed it was taking part in the project.
A spokeswoman said: “We are pleased to have been aligned with Bangladesh and St Lucia, and are currently exploring how we can develop our links with these countries in the lead-up to and during 2014.”
A number of national grant schemes have been set up to support games-related activities.
