Sarah said: “I thank the Saltire Society for the honour of including me amongst a list of wonderful women in Scotland from all walks of life and such breadth of achievement.
“If you can see it, you can be it.
“So congratulations to the Saltire Society for highlighting the success of many women who can all set an example for other women to come along and exceed.
“May your list get longer and longer of brilliant women doing amazing things across Scotland and in the wider world.”
Saltire Society programme manager Sarah Mason said: “It is a privilege to honour these truly inspiring women.
“Over the years, the contribution of Scotland’s women to the cultural life of this country has been remarkable but, sadly, too often underestimated
“In growing the Outstanding Women of Scotland community, year by year, I hope we can begin to address that shortcoming.”
