About the Scotland Region

As a large region we try to appeal to members all over Scotland with events from North of Inverness to South of Edinburgh. We try to have as many events as members wish with Distinction Advisory Days, informal constructive feedback days, Celebrations of Distinctions, a Travelling Print Exhibition, Lecture Series, and the Dunfermline Weekend every second year. The Region encourages as many special interest groups as wish to participate in it. We aim to be informal and welcoming. For any further information, just drop me an email or call (07881856294 - but as I am a working GP, I may not always be able to answer straight away).

Picture of the Week

Forth Bridge by Andrew Cowie/ Kenneth Ness ARPS


The Forth Bridge is a cantilever railway bridge across the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland. It is considered as a symbol of Scotland and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was designed by the English engineers Sir John Fowler and Sir Benjamin Baker and was opened on 4 March 1890.

This photograph was taken by Andrew Cowie of Cowie & Govan, Photographers, of South Street, St Andrews in roughly 1948. Andrew died in 1980 from Leukaemia aged 43.  This slide is a testament to the durability of Kodachrome films that little repair was needed.

The Shetland Exhibition never got of the ground due to the spread of Corvid-19 (Coronavirus). Images have now come back and preparations are underway to stage the next Exhibition venue which should have been Fife.

It is, however, been announced that Fife will now NOT take place and Peniciuk is also looking doubtful at present. Falkirk may well go ahead if the situation changes and notification will be made in due course.

Additionally the ARPS/LRPS Advisory Day at Bridge of Allan which was to be held on June 27th has been posponed indefinitely. All payments should now have been returned.

Further updates will be made in due course.
