The awards take place annually and are designed to give the public a unique opportunity to vote for those individuals who have exceeded all expectations in their chosen field. It is hoped the awards can highlight great achievements across Scotland’s rich cultural spectrum, and this year the categories being voted for include Food, Music, The Entertainment, Screen, Art, Business, Writing and Sport.
Previous winners of the Sport Award include endurance cyclist Mark Beaumont, Andy Murray, Colin Montgomery, Sir Alex Ferguson and British Cycling’s own Sir Chris Hoy.
The awards will be held in Edinburgh on the 29 November and voting can be done via the Glenfiddich website- www.glenfiddich.co.uk/news-events/glenfiddich-spirit-of-scotland-awards/sport.html.
