The Venue

The event takes place on a 110-acre showground. The majority of pathing is tarmac roads or boardwalks. Although, our trade stands and displays are also spread over grass areas. The Showground is made up of a grid system with each avenue being identified by a letter or number. This is shown on our RHS App, Show Program (that can be purchased inside the entrances) and on our directional signage. Our most congested areas are around the Main Ring on Avenue O/7th Avenue, inside Scotland’s Larder and on 13th Avenue which is the avenue that runs towards Scotland’s Larder.

What terrain is at the Showground?

The event takes place on a 110-acre showground. The majority of pathing is tarmac roads or boardwalks. Although, our trade stands and displays are also spread over grass areas.

The Showground is made up of a grid system for each avenue. This is shown on our RHS App, Show Program that can be purchased inside the entrances and on our directional signage. 

Our most congested areas are around the Main Ring on Avenue O/7th Avenue, inside Scotland’s Larder and on 13th Avenue which is the avenue that runs towards Scotland’s Larder.

 

Cattle Hall (Highland Hall)

This venue is accessible by wide doors … The public area to view the cattle is all on the ground floor.

There will be a strong animal smell and loud noises by the animals in this area.

The flooring is flat concreate but the floor will mostly be covered in hay which could make the floor inaccessible.

The Cattle Hall closes to the public at various times throughout the day when animals are moving between the Hall and the Showing Rings. Closure timings are displayed in the Main Foyer of the Cattle Hall.

You can access the Clydesdale Horses area in the Central Hall via an indoor ramp from the Cattle Hall.

This venue is accessible by a lowered pavement and wide doors. The doors do have a small lip on the floor but we have first exits at the side of the building which would accommodate a wheelchair or scooter. This venue is only one level and the walkway around the exhibition will be carpeted.

Scotland’s Larder and the avenue that leads to the hall are one of the busiest areas during the event.
