Who we are

Helping the people of Scotland get the most from the sporting system

sportscotland is the national agency for sport.

We are a non-departmental public body, responsible through ministers to the Scottish Parliament. We are also a National Lottery Fund distributor and we are governed by National Lottery distribution rules.

sportscotland has three directorates - sports development, high performance and corporate services - and we have a wide range of partnerships running the length and breadth of the country.

Where we work

We deliver from bases across Scotland, including our headquarters in Glasgow, the sportscotland institute of sport in Stirling and our regional bases in Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Falkirk and Inverness.

The sportscotland Trust Company operates three national training centres, which provide quality, affordable and appropriate residential and sporting facilities for people to develop in sport.
