About the Royal Scottish Geographical Society

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).

A Uniquely Scottish Flavour 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.
