Scotland’s booming hospitality industry is continually growing and developing, with an abundance of high-quality accommodation, dining and leisure options. In 2018, the Rural Hospitality category was separated from Rural Tourism, in acknowledgement of how these industries operate in tandem.
Who can enter?
The Rural Hospitality category is open to nominations from hotels, B&Bs, self-catering accommodations, restaurants, cafes, bars and any other rural businesses whose main business objective is to provide guest or customer services.
What the judges are looking for:
The judges will be asking the following questions of the nominee’s application:
How does the nominee work within their community?
How do they engage with their local resources?
What value do they bring to their area in terms of local suppliers, employment, integration and positive development?
