From June 23-26 the best of farming, food and rural life in Scotland will be flocking to Edinburgh’s Royal Highland Centre for the 176th Royal Highland Show.

The Highland’s big attraction is without doubt the high quality livestock - with more than 5,000 of the finest cattle, sheep, goats and horses, not to mention poultry.

With generations of careful breeding, years of expert husbandry and months of meticulous preparation, the animals are world class and represent the finest in stockmen’s skills. A win at the Highland has been proven to increase demand and the value of the award-winning stock.

The Royal Highland Show is the largest equestrian show in Scotland with almost 3,000 horses and ponies competing in classes for light and heavy horse and other

disciplines, such as private driving and heavy horse turnouts.

It is also a focal point for showing the best of the best in Scotland’s native breeds.

The vast majority of machinery and equipment manufacturers, dealers and specialists are represented at the Highland, giving everyone involved in the sector a unique opportunity to review the latest releases and developments all in one place. All the major players agree the Show is a ‘must attend’ from a number of key business objectives. Over 90% of the 2015 agricultural trade stands exhibitors have rebooked for 2016, showing that confidence in the Show is high.

One of the biggest successes of 2015 was Scotland’s Larder Live and his year, the Show will also host the Scottish Cheese and Scottish Ice Cream Championships.

Visitors will be treated to live cooking experiences from top chefs and given the opportunity to take home some of the hundreds of products on sale,
