Scottish Outdoor and Leisure Awards!

The hunt is on to find Scotland’s favourite outdoor and leisure businesses of 2017


As a nation we pride ourselves in our great outdoors, and the Scottish Outdoor and Leisure Awards (SOLA) seek to reward businesses who have made outstanding contributions to the industry.

More than 1,000 venues participated in last year’s inaugural awards, and winners included Highland Campervans for Scotland’s Best Motorhome Hire Company, Arran’s Auchrannie Resort for Scotland’s Best Leisure Resort Hotel and Stirling Castle for Scotland’s Best Visitor Attraction.

The awards were such a success that they have been developed into an annual event, with a public vote creating the shortlist, and an independent judging panel deciding the winners.

Warren Paul, CEO and Founder of SOLA was delighted with the feedback on the first awards, and the initial responses in year two.

“The inaugural awards created firm foundations to develop SOLA into an annual competition and a mainstay event of the industry,” he said.

“Already we are seeing new businesses from across the country engage in year two. It’s a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the businesses that help to showcase our beautiful country; good luck to all!”

The businesses with the most votes will enter shortlists, and an independent judging panel will decide the winners from there. A 2017 Gala Final will take over the Marriott Hotel, Glasgow on the October 29, where the winners will be announced.

Here is the full list of categories –
