Scottish Thistle Awards

Scotland's tourism industry, we believe, is the heart and soul of the country, employing over 200,000 passionate and committed individuals who between them help generate £11bn of income per annum.

For over 25 years the Scottish Thistle Awards have been honouring individuals, businesses, partnerships and events for their innovation, excellence and success in the Scottish hospitality and tourism sector.

The Scottish Thistle Awards is based on 5 regional programmes with the winners of each progressing to the National Final.

Organised by VisitScotland and supported by a panel of industry representatives, these prestigious awards are without doubt the ones our industry leaders want to have in their trophy cabinet!
