The Scottish Rural Awards, partnered by Scottish Field magazine and the Scottish Countryside Alliance, are the ultimate benchmark of excellence in rural Scotland. Celebrating the true industry, innovation, dedication and community spirit of those who live and work in our wonderful countryside, the Scottish Rural Awards will culminate in a black-tie awards ceremony and gala dinner.

The Scottish Rural Awards celebrates the triumphs of businesses, organisations and individuals living and working in the Scottish countryside, as well as highlighting the difficulties which are often faced in order to thrive. Ultimately, the Scottish Rural Awards honours those whose work helps to create the beautiful fabric that is Scotland’s countryside. 

Judged by an esteemed panel of industry leaders and experts, the Scottish Rural Awards is a rigorous multi-stage process, including pre-scoring by the awards team, where entries are discussed and evaluated in detail to decide a shortlist of finalists in each category. Judges may then visit finalists before further reviewing and evaluating to decide the winning entries.

The partnership between Scottish Field magazine and the Scottish Countryside Alliance which brings the Scottish Rural Awards to the national stage is now in its fifth year, with a set of 13 categories championing the rural businesses and unsung community heroes of Scotland.
