Shotts Highland Games Association were honoured by Lanarkshire’s Supercounty with a Cultural Heritage Award in 2009 in recognition of 60 years of highland games in Shotts.
The award was presented to Chairman Alex Hamilton by Lord Lieutenant Gilbert Cox who said: “Ten committee members work tirelessly all year to continue this Scottish cultural exchange, supporting traditional events. We recognise the strong tradition that they are upholding; we recognise the importance of celebrating and preserving such events; and we recognise that they have successfully held Shotts Highland Games for 60 years. What an achievement.”
