NFU Scot­land and NFU Mu­tual’s pres­ti­gious Am­bas­sador Award has been pre­sented to Anne and Bobby Len­nox.

The cou­ple, from Shantron Farm, near Luss on Loch Lomond-side, were an­nounced as win­ners at NFU Scot­land’s an­nual din­ner in Glas­gow on Fe­bru­ary 6.

Es­tab­lished in 2009, the award was set up to recog­nise in­di­vid­u­als who have played an in­flu­en­tial role in com­mu­ni­cat­ing the work, chal­lenges and the value of Scot­tish food and farm­ing to a wider au­di­ence.

The cou­ple are wor­thy win­ners and well­known faces to TV au­di­ences. They were one of the farm­ing cou­ples to star in the first se­ries of the BBC’s award-win­ning This Farm­ing Life pro­gramme, which aired in spring 2016.

The award is also in recog­ni­tion of the stal­wart sup­port Anne and Bobby have given to hill farm­ing, the young farm­ers’ move­ment, ed­u­ca­tion and tourism over many years.
