Duns Castle Estate scooped another award last night at the 2018 Scottish Rural Awards Ceremony held at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. Of the 550 entries in the Rural Hospitality category, Duns Castle Estate came in third, winning the “Highly Commended” accolade. Thank you to the organisers of the ceremony and to the judging panel for recognising and rewarding our efforts. Hosted by Dougie Vipond, BBC Presenter and Ex-Drummer of the Band Deacon Blue, the evening gathered finalists from rural communities across Scotland and was a delight to attend.
We also congratulate our neighbouring farmers CH & AK Walker from Barnside Farm near Duns for winning Highly Commended in the Conservation & Environment category and Runner Up in the Agriculture category.
