Scottish Badgers annual conference is the only specialist badger conference in Scotland and draws speakers, members and guests, from all over the UK. If you have a professional or personal interest in badgers, their biology, ecology and welfare this event is not to be missed.
In past years our conference has taken place in September at Oatridge Agricultural College, Broxburn, West Lothian. In 2017 we will be making a change and the conference and A.G.M. will take place on the 7th of October and the venue is the Balmoral Suite, Queen's Hotel, 105 Leonard St, Perth PH2 8HB. This excellent site is just two minutes walk from both Perth railway station and bus station. There is also extensive parking on site. As well as being readily accessible by public transport Perth is fairly centrally located on Scotland's trunk road system and we hope this will make it easier for many more of our members to attend for the day. For those who need to stay overnight Perth has a wide selection of accomodation to suit most budgets.
