The Royal Highland Show is the flagship event of Scottish charity the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland, founded in 1784. The 4-day event is the pinnacle of the agricultural calendar involving over 1,000 trade exhibitors, 2,150 livestock competitors (with over 6,500 animals) and has an annual economic impact estimated at over £65 million.
For four days in June and over 280 acres, the finest livestock share centre stage with Scotland's bountiful larder, spectacular show jumping, countryside pursuits, educational workshops, entertainment, shopping and a host of business opportunities.
The four day event has become not only the most important date in the country's calendar, but also with Government and industry bodies, food producers and business leaders. With over 100 media reporting live from the show, it is the place to make the headlines, network, influence and most importantly, do business.
It is also considered a great day out for families and individuals keen to experience the best Scotland has to offer.
