As the lead agency for the development of sport we have a clear focus on developing and supporting a world class sporting system in Scotland.
Sportscotland has 3 directorates: sports development, high performance and corporate services. The Sportscotland Trust Company also operates three national training centres, our National Outdoor Centre at Glenmore Lodge, our National Indoor Centre at Inverclyde, and our National Sailing Centre at Cumbrae. These centres provide quality sporting facilities for people to develop in sport. Across these directorates and centres we have approximately 60 experienced senior managers who set the vision, tone and leadership for their areas of responsibility, as well as providing direction for Sportscotland as a whole.
