Each year thousands of people attend the Royal Highland Show to see, taste and experience the very best of Scottish farming, food and rural life.
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 one of the most important dates in the country’s calendar for 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. The RHET Discovery Centre is open to the public all four days.
