Forthcoming Events

This page details the forthcoming Scottish Region events.

Day, Date & Time:Wednesday 14 September 2022 (1400 hours) and Thursday 15 September 2022 (0945)
Venue:Boat of Garten and at Boat of Garten Community Hall, Reidhaven Park, Craigie Avenue, Boat of Garten, PH24 3BL (15 September 2022)
Topic & Speaker:The SRITC Gathering 2022
1400 on 14 September visits including behind the scenes at the Strathspey railway followed by dinner

0945-1015 on 15 September sessions on innovation, decarbonisation, sustainable travel followed by campfire conversations, ceilidh and awards. It will be hybrid for those that can't attend in person.

Working together to solve the accessibility, affordability and sustainability issues facing rural and islands communities inside and outside Scotland, for the first time in 3 years, we have an opportunity to gather in person to reflect on how our communities have changed since 2019 and the actions that are being taken to improve the provision of transport services and reduce car dependency.

The Day Pass is for people who can attend The Gathering in person but only during the day. This recognising that not everyone has the flexibility to stay for the dinner, dance and awards ceremony in the evening.

The In-Person Day Pass will get you right to the heart of the discussions taking place during The Gathering including:
- Keynote Presentations
- Panel Discussions
- Workshops
- Networking Breaks

Plus, you can visit the exhibitor stands and add your ideas to the suggestion boards dotted around the Hall.

Participants are encouraged to travel sustainably and Stagecoach is providing two buses. These will be available for transporting attendees between accommodation and venues.

Topic & Speaker:"Scotland's milestones" by Bruce Keith, author, historian and environmentalist

In the days before satnav, our predecessors ascertained their sense of distance and direction from milestones, which were made a statutory requirement under the Turnpike Acts of the eighteenth century. Today they have become treasured furniture of our roadside verges, and tell the story of how our transport networks - canal and rail as well as road - have evolved. Chartered surveyor and bridge historian Bruce Keith will use his new book celebrating our milestones to follow some of the great journeys that have left an indelible mark on our national psyche - pilgrims en route to the shrines of the saints, the Jacobite Army on its march south and then retreating homewards to defeat at Culloden, then less than thirty years later the itinerary of Johnson and Boswell that helped lay the foundations of Scottish tourism.
Cost & Booking:Members: Free; Non-Members: £5.00. Booking through Corby is required. Quote booking code SR0xxx.
