About the Scottish Rural Parliament

The Scottish Rural Parliament is a grassroots democratic assembly, bringing together people who live and work in rural and island Scotland to debate the issues that matter. 

A member of the European-wide network of Rural Parliaments, the Scottish Rural Parliament takes place every two years, each time hosted by a different rural community - Oban in 2014, Brechin in 2016, Stranraer in 2018 and virtually in 2021. Secretariat and coordination is provided by Scottish Rural Action with the programme and event shaped by a wide range of rural and island organisations.
