What is the Icon Scotland Group?

The Scotland Group is the only national sub-group of Icon and represents professional conservators throughout all disciplines, conservation scientists and preservation managers and specialists working in Scotland.

Like much of the industry and country, the committee have had to adapt very quickly to a new reality in which we can’t meet in person or provide our usual array of hands on training workshops and lectures. In these uncertain times we continue to work for our members by representing their interests to industry leaders and through the provision of online events to help us stay connected and upskilled.

Please contact us with any particular issues, feedback, news, specific interests, suggestions, questions or if you want to become involved in the committee by emailing You can also contact us and keep in touch with our news and activities via our social media channels (Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and our Wordpress Blog 'Conservation Conversations').
