Nationally, more than 1,200 recipients have been awarded for their exceptional achievements, with a focus on those who have given with generosity to others in need.

Speaking as King Charles’ New Year Honours were announced, scottish secretary Alister Jack said: “My warmest congratulations go to all the Scottish recipients of the King’s New Year Honours.

“Scots are well represented in His Majesty’s list, which showcases the best of Scottish talent – including sport, the arts, community, education, business, charity, policing and healthcare.”
