About

One of Scotland’s most loved outdoor agricultural events 

The annual Royal Highland Show celebrates the best in farming, eating and rural industry across Scotland. For four days in June, it offers fun for all ages including opportunities to get up close to farmyard animals, sample delicious and often locally produced food and drink, and experience rural living as never before.

Put on by the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland and launched in 1822, the show initially moved around visiting different towns and regions of the country. In 1960, it settled in Edinburgh with the Royal Highland Centre in Ingliston becoming a permanent home.

At each event attendees can expect the finest livestock, a dedicated forestry arena, a farrier display, countryside pursuits, spectacular show jumping, rural crafts, lots of farm machinery and a line-up of live music and entertainment to captivate the whole family. In addition, shoppers are always spoiled for choice with a huge selection of country wares on offer, ranging from pet accessories and jewellery to art and garden furniture.

In 2019, the Royal Highland Show attracted nearly 200,000 people and boasted more than 5,000 animals – including 2,128 sheep, 2,200 horses and 1,101 beef and dairy cattle – competing for over 280 trophies and £170,000 in prize money.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic the Royal Highland Show was cancelled in 2020 and 2021, with a focus instead on bringing together the most-loved parts of the live show to take place behind closed doors at the showground and be livestreamed around the world.

In June 2021, organisers confirmed the Royal Highland Show would return from 23 – 26 June 2022 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the event’s launch.
