(Associate) Scotland’s Rural College delivers comprehensive skills, education and business support for Scotland’s land-based industries. Within SRUC, the Rural Society team focuses on the changing rural social and economic landscape of Scotland, with links also to comparative international research. We aim to provide evidence and guidance relating to the resilience, vibrancy and sustainability of Scotland’s rural communities. We aim to move beyond individual case studies to a systematised understanding of resilient and vibrant communities, identifying patterns and processes across localities.
