Miss Scotland 2018 has concluded after a grueling few months of competition. The coronation night of the competition was held on June 15th at the Corinthian Club in Glasgow, where Miss Scotland 2017 Romy McCahill crowned her successor.

Contestants worked hard throughout the duration of the competition to fulfill their advocacies. Unlike most other pageants, Miss Scotland did not hold preliminary activities like swimsuit, evening gown, or resort wear rounds before the finale night. The pageant rather focused on the contestants organizing events and charities for their advocacies.

Jennifer Reoch once again hosted Miss Scotland 2018 final, and Emily Middlemas repeated history by performing at the coronation night.

At the conclusion of the grand finale, Miss Scotland 2018 crown was worn by Linzi McLelland of East Killbride.

Linzi is raising money for SAMH. She has been very close with the charity for some years now after losing her father to suicide.

Just a day before winning Miss Scotland 2018, Linzi handed over a cheque to SAMH of the money she had raised, i.e. £1820. This money will go specifically to the team that deals with suicide prevention. The money will go to towards training people, employers or family on how to deal and what to look out for with people who are mentally ill and are a threat their self.

Linzi’s last challenge with Miss Scotland was to visit The Tartan Weave Mill on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh. Linzi talked about her visit on the Miss Scotland Facebook page, she said, “I didn’t realize there are so many different Tartans and colors, even a tartan called ‘Lindsay’. It's filled with luxury cashmere and lamb’s wool products, everything you could possibly think of that's Scottish!”

Linzi has done some truly phenomenal work and seems to have genuinely great ideas for the future. We wish the newly crowned beauty queen gets even more help for her advocacy and is able to carry on the noble agenda.
