The most recent Forum Meeting and members' EGM was held on Thursday 24th April at the St Mungo's Museum in Glasgow.

This meeting was open to both members and non members and had a full and interesting agenda. It also included a conducted tour of Glasgow Cathedral and participants were joined by walkers completing the final leg of the "850 Pilgrimage" walk linking Glasgow with Paisley and Whithorn.

The "Scottish Pilgrim Routes Forum" (SPRF) was established in February 2012 following a meeting of interested persons and organisations held at Culross Abbey. This follows a period over 2 to 3 years of seminars and meetings where ecumenical church groups and individuals, Scottish Parliamentarians, SNH, Visit Scotland and walking enthusiasts, to mention but some, have been looking at the potential for growth and development in "Faith Tourism" and Pilgrimage routes.

This group aims to be a focal point for discussion and development of Pilgrim Routes within Scotland.
