Finalists in Scotland's Most Beautiful High Street

Voting is now open for the Scotland's Most Beautiful High Street competition which we are supporting along with Scotland's Towns Partnership.

After receiving fantastic entries the judging panel has drawn up a shortlist of 10 finalists. The winner will be decided by an online public vote, which is open from now until 1 October 2017.

Scotland’s Most Beautiful High Street competition takes a broad understanding of “beautiful”, and we sought to know what it is about your High Street which makes it special.

Launching the voting, Chief Officer Phil Prentice said, “We were delighted to receive so many applications for this, the first national competition to find Scotland’s Most Beautiful High Street, in partnership with Keep Scotland Beautiful.

“The wide variety and calibre of entrants into this year’s competition is testament to the work that communities across Scotland are doing in collaboration, to support and promote good quality environments and the vibrancy of their town centres.”

Carole Noble, our Operations Director commented "I’d urge everyone to vote for the places they care for in this competition - working together we can all enjoy and celebrate cleaner, greener and more beautiful places.”
