The GCA has recognised Simpsons Garden Centre as the best destination garden centre in Scotland.

That makes it four years in a row that Simpsons has taken the award.
The family firm also picked up three other prizes from the GCA. It took best restaurant, the GIMA award for best garden products and the Barton Grange Trophy.
Its success now puts Simpsons in the running for the UK destination garden centre of the year title.
As well as the Ruxley Rose award for the top UK plant area and garden centre of excellence awards.
The announcement of the results will be in January next year.
The awards are a result of the annual inspections carried out by the GCA.
MD Andrew Simpson said they were a great incentive for the company to continue to do its best to improve.
“Everyone here at Simpsons is so pleased to receive these awards,” he said.
“Our success is thanks to our teams who work so hard to inspire each other, and our customers on a daily basis.
“These awards not only recognise everyone’s constant and consistent drive, but also show that we are working hard to inspire and excite our customers with great displays, quality products and innovative events throughout the year.”
Formed in 2001, Simpsons now employs more than 100 people at its premises in the Inshes area of Inverness.
