A SHORTLIST of the best new buildings in Scotland for 2019 features two entries from Moray.

The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) has announced a 19 strong shortlist for this year's awards, selected from 82 entries.

The £140 million Macallan Distillery and Visitor Experience, designed by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners for Edrington, features on the list.

President of the RIAS, Robin Webster OBE, said: "This year’s judges were struck by the continuing high standard of submissions and found shortlisting very difficult indeed.

"This is an impressive list of buildings that all show the ambitious level of excellence that architects and their clients can achieve, and I hope that communities, government and local authorities, along with everyone else who needs to procure buildings will look at these examples and ensure that their ambitions match them.

"Our awards celebrate the very best that is being built in Scotland."

Judging will take place at the end of April with the RIAS Awards Winners being announced at a dinner at the Assembly Rooms, Edinburgh on May 30.
