As the awards got underway, there was a great sense of unity in the air, as everyone came together under the Scottish banner to enjoy the occasion. Television Presenter and Journalist Andrew Neil and comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli provided fantastic entertainment as the compares for the night.
The Olympian’s still beaming with pride from their sporting achievements this year were happy to mingle with guests and have pictures taken holding their medals. Luke Patience commented “I’m already beginning training for Rio 2016”.
Gold medal winner Tim Baillie was presented with the Aberdeen Asset Management Great Scot Award for sport — “this was not something I imagined at the beginning of the year and it’s been truly an amazing year for Scottish sport”.
