Award recognition for Holyrood PRIf you think your business has got that extra edge or that special something, then maybe 2016 will be the year you decide to take the plunge and enter the showpiece awards ceremony for your sector.

If you are that type of business in the running for awards, then you are also the kind of enterprise that deserves a public and media profile to match – and we know just the public relations agency to help.

Here at Holyrood PR in Scotland we are justifiably proud of our work and our services on behalf of our varied clients – and we’ve been named Scotland’s most Outstanding Small PR agency as a result.
