Go for a Scottish Thistle Award

Wed 5 Jul 17

The Scottish Thistle Awards, in association with Fishers, celebrate tourism businesses or suppliers across the country who have gone the extra mile to offer an outstanding visitor experience.

This year we celebrate 25 years of the Scottish Thistle Awards and with four weeks until nominations close we're reaching out to everyone to ask you to play your part and nominate businesses, events or people who you feel should be entering.

Or in fact if you are a business that's achieved something marvellous – get yourself some recognition and celebrate your success by entering now.

The Thistles are the only national awards scheme to recognise all elements of tourism and are designed to discover and celebrate excellence and innovation by the Scottish tourism industry for our visitors.

They are free to enter with 15 categories across five regional programmes. Winners from each regional final progress to the glittering finale at the national final during Scottish Tourism Week in March 2018.

Nomination deadline: Friday 23 June. Entry deadline: Friday 30 June.

Further information can be found on the Scottish Thistle Awards website.

Organised by VisitScotland in association with the Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards, Highlands and Islands Tourism Awards, HIT Scotland, Scotland Food and Drink, Scottish Licenced Trade Association, Scottish Tourism Alliance, sportscotland and Wild Scotland, these prestigious awards are without doubt the ones our industry leaders want to have in their trophy cabinet!
