Event Description

One of Scotland’s and the UK's most loved outdoor agricultural events The annual Royal Highland Show celebrates the best in farming, food 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. 2022 marked the 200th anniversary of the Royal Highland Show and the return to a normal event after a two-year hiatus because of Covid.

News Flash - Super Early Bird Tickets - You can now book tickets directly on the Royal Highland Show's website for the 2024 event where many of the tickets can be purchased on the 'Super Early Bird Offer'.

'The Royal Highland Show is a Dog Friendly Event'

At each event day, attendees can expect to see the finest livestock, witness incredible feats of skill and bravery in the forestry arena, feel the heat of the hot coals at the farrier displays, enjoy countryside pursuits, view spectacular show jumping, learn about rural crafts and inspect the vast lots of farm machinery across the showground as well as enjoying 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.

The 2023 event was indeed a major success. More than 217,000 people attended over the four days. To think this is a grown-up adult event only, couldn't be further from the truth as there were more than 26,500 children attending. Remember, children 15 and under go free. More than 140,000 views from over 113 countries on the shows streaming platform. More than 280 trophies were awarded in competitions for cattle, horses, goats and so on.
