Here is what some of our sponsors have to say…

"It is important for us to build awareness of our brand and offering through the tourism sector, which is the reason why we opted to sponsor the Scottish Thistle Awards.  They have given us the opportunity to network with many businesses and organisations resulting in many new joint working opportunities."
