SAGT Conference 2014 - post #2

Up on East Coast mainline to Edinburgh on Friday, then a crowded train to Perth. Arrived and checked in at the Isle of Skye Hotel (AKA the Travelodge), then walked across the Tay to the HQ of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society for a reception to launch a book on the history of the society and Scottish Geography. Toured the building, and met a few familiar faces from the geography community.
Out for an SAGT meal after the reception and a chat to Mark Higginbottom: the current GA president, then back to the hotel and a nightcap with Jim Hansom from the University of Glasgow (who co-produced this excellent coastal resource)
