Scottish Arctic Club
The SAC is a group of enthusiasts with a common interest in the Arctic regions. The Club was founded in 1970. Many members have been on expeditions to the arctic and have travelled extensively there. The main activities of the Club are the Annual Gathering and Supper, the Spring Meet, the Award of Expedition Grants and the distribution of three Newsletters each year. Our meetings are held in Scotland but our members also come from England, Wales and Ireland as well as many other countries such as Alaska, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Iceland and Switzerland.
The Library has been transferred to the Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS). Members can consult the Scottish Arctic Club Library, and the Erskine Library, in the Shackleton room of the RSGS premises in Perth (Lord John Murray House).
