The Workshops

Our rescues do not take place indoors, so most of your workshop choices at this conference are based outside. Using venues in the stunning Cairngorms National Park you will be working  in small groups with expert instructors, many of whom are also Rescue team members.  There is more information on workshops via the button on the left and the list of workshop topics is also available here. This document will be updated as new information becomes available.
