A Body of Influence

The Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS), is proud of its heritage and notable achievements in the promotion of land-based and allied business in Scotland.

With over 16,000 members – many of whom are landowners and farmers responsible for the stewardship of Scotland’s countryside and the environment – we strive to inspire innovation, excellence and achievement. RHASS plays a pivotal role in the creation of a better public understanding of the management of the land and rural resources; from delivering world-class education programmes to providing engaging platforms to showcase the best in farming and food at the Royal Highland Show.

Within RHASS, there is a group of committed individuals, directors and staff with significant expertise across agri-business, food and drink, rural affairs, conservation, environment and land management. Working together with other key influencers and industry bodies, we continue to shape this dynamic and vibrant industry of such importance to Scotland and look to the future with confidence, ambition and determination.
