Scottish Licensed Trade Association

Founded in 1880 The Scottish Licensed Trade Association is the only national organisation which represents all sectors of the Scottish Licensed Trade Industry.

Our aim is to give a voice to everyone involved in the Scottish Licensed Trade. You may own one bar or multiple outlets, you may be a tenant, a manager or are employed in any way in the industry, whatever your role we are working tirelessly on your behalf.

We are currently in dialogue with the Scottish Government on seven pieces of proposed legislation, all of which will have varying levels of impact on all of us who work in the industry. So, no matter what your role is in the trade currently, please feel free to contact us on any relevant issue. We will welcome and value your comments.
