Entries Open: The Scottish Thistle Awards

For nearly three decades, the Scottish Thistle Awards have stood as a beacon of recognition for excellence in Scotland’s tourism industry. As the Scottish Licensed Trade Association, we are proud to encourage licensed businesses across Scotland to participate in these prestigious awards, showcasing the best of what our industry has to offer.

Celebrating the Best in the Business.

At the core of the Scottish Thistle Awards lies a commitment to celebrating innovation, collaboration, and sustainable practices within the tourism sector. With responsible tourism at its heart, these awards not only honour outstanding achievements but also align with Scotland’s ambition to lead globally in sustainable tourism efforts. Each entry is required to demonstrate evidence of responsible and sustainable practices, perfectly resonating with the goals set forth in Scotland’s national tourism strategy, Outlook 2030.

How Businesses can go forward to an Award.

Public nominations are not a prerequisite for entry to the Thistle awards and businesses can still directly enter online into their chosen award categories up until the 28th of April 2024.  Shortlisting takes place during May and June, where a panel of independent industry experts meticulously evaluates each entry. The shortlist for each category is announced in July, signalling recognition for outstanding achievements. Keep an eye on our website and corporate Twitter channel for updates on the shortlisted businesses.
