The Scotland's Rural Past Third Annual Conference will be held on Saturday 30 October 2010 at the Crieff Hydro, Crieff, Perthshire. As in previous years, we have a full and varied conference programme which showcases a great selection of SRP projects taking place across the country. The keynote talk will be given by renowned writer and historian, Dr Fiona Watson, on Everyday life on the land: a hidden history.
In addition to the papers being presented by SRP volunteers, work from many other projects will be on display throughout the day, and you will also (we hope) have the chance to preview the new SRP training fieldwork videos. There will also be lots more going on, including workshops, book stalls, the SRP clinics, a wine reception and the conference dinner, all in the wonderful setting of the Crieff Hydro.
On the following morning, Sunday 31 October, conference delegates are invited to come on a guided walk with RCAHMS experts to explore abandoned rural settlement sites in the local area. Places on the walk will be restricted, so please apply early!

We have also put together a Word document listing travel and accomodation details. Please note that conference numbers are restricted and early registration is recommended to ensure your place.
