A message from Professor Iain Stewart.
|Professor Iain Stewart, President of RSGS|
Now, in celebration of the RSGS’s 130th anniversary, we plan to refresh and extend the interpretative displays and facilities inside and outside the building, to give visitors even more to see, to maximise the space available for visiting schools and other groups, to give us more flexibility when running events, and to celebrate the tremendous contribution made by the 19th-century Scottish scientist James Croll to geographical thinking and our modern understanding of climate cycles – how variations in the Earth’s orbit affect its climate, leading to regular and predictable ice ages.

|Some design ideas from students at the Edinburgh College of Art|
We have set a target for the project of £16,000. If we can raise more than this from members and other supporters, then we can do even more to improve the Fair Maid’s House for all our visitors, and to support its ongoing running costs.
