Thistle awards logo

The Scottish Thistle Awards programme is designed to celebrate excellence and innovation across the Scottish Tourism industry. It encourages businesses to be proud of their achievements and to share ideas and best practice with their peers, supporting growth through common raised standards.

The awards are open to all businesses either based in Scotland or who have a Scottish product which has an association with Scottish Tourism. The Scottish Thistle Awards are broken down into categories which businesses can choose from. The Scottish Thistle Awards support VisitScotland’s objectives to provide quality advice to industry partners to help the industry meet and strive to exceed visitors’ expectations.

Historic Scotland is delighted to be associated with the Scottish Thistle Awards and in particular the celebration of entrepreneurship in Scottish Tourism, which plays such a vital part in Scotland’s economy.

Historic Scotland is pleased to sponsor the Tourism Entrepreneur of the Year Award at the Scottish Thistle Awards. The Scottish Thistle Awards recognise the best of Scottish Tourism. Scotland is a world-class, year round destination with its fascinating history and heritage. Awards such as these help us to ensure we strive for excellence and continue to attract as many visitors as possible.
