It is with regret that the Executive Committee of Ploughing Championships (Scotland) Limited announces the cancellation of the 2021 Scottish Ploughing Championships.
Unfortunately due to the ongoing uncertainties about what restrictions may be in place in October it has not been possible to commence arrangements for the 58th Scottish Ploughing Championships due to be held at Monktonhill, Prestwick, by kind permission of Mr A Cuthbertson.
The financial risk to the organisation in going ahead with planning and then having to cancel closer to the event due to changes to restrictions to deal with an increase in cases or a new variant is too great. Due to the unpredictability of the virus and restrictions still in place it was not possible to guarantee being able to organise a Scottish Ploughing Championships to the high standard we would wish.
We will now commence planning for the 58th Scottish Ploughing Championships to be held at Stanstill Farm, Thurso, Caithness by kind permission of Mr and Mrs M Milne on 22nd & 23rd October 2022.
The proposed meeting scheduled for 20th June to appoint judges and stewards will NOT be held.
