Scottish Rural Awards 2020

Award Criteria

Specifically awarded to an individual whose impact over time has enhanced the lives of others, without whose efforts a significant detriment or deficit would result. Lifetime Achievement does not mean the individual has completed their endeavours, but it does recognise that the individual has committed a significant proportion of their life to those endeavours.

Sir Ian Grant won the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Scottish Rural Awards in 2019. From left: Dougie Vipond, Sir Ian Grant, Clare Stewart
