The Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) was founded in 1884 and is based in Perth. The Society has a
membership of 2500 and aims to advance the understanding of geography world-wide by supporting education, research,
expeditions, through its journal (the Scottish Geographical Journal) and its newsletter (The Geographer).
The Society operates fourteen regional centres across Scotland which are the focus for a high-profile programme of more than one hundred illustrated talks annually. Based on its expertise and library, the Society also provides a service intended to answer geographical queries about Scotland and beyond.
The RSGS provides a uniquely Scottish flavour, with particular interests in working with Scottish Universities and educators in developing the discipline world-wide.
