A colourful show for all!

A veritable institution in Scotland, the Royal Highland Show is a historic agricultural fair which dates back to 1922. This event is a high point on the agricultural calendar in Scotland. A number of major institutions, producers and people from within this sector will be present at this festive show, which always attracts a huge crowd of visitors.

You will of course find farming equipment and prize cattle breeding competitions, but also fine food and drink, fashion, gardening and handicrafts stalls and, with entertaining competitions such as terrier racing, falconry, gun dogs, pony shows and face painting, there is plenty to interest the whole family at the Royal Highland Show!
