Firmly established as a key element of formal research training for Human Geography students from across Scotland, the 27th annual Advanced Research Training in Human Geography event was held at Firbush Point Outdoor Activity Centre, Loch Tay 7th – 9th October. The course is designed and delivered by a consortium of staff drawn from the five Scottish University Departments of Geography. Seven Aberdeen students participated (Carole Barbone, David Flood, Jorge Eslava Bautista, Alexis Kaselouris, Marja van den Houten, Bably Sinojakumar and Nicola Malman) and academic staff member Lorna Philip joined fellow staff and research students from the Geography communities at the Universities of Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and St Andrews. Sessions offered in the 2019 course included On Publishing, Communicating your research, Psychogeopgraphies, and Impact and Stakeholder Engagement. After a wet start, the sun came out and students undertook a Geography Mindfulness Walk. They also had ample opportunity to enjoy the autumn sunshine and take in the dramatic views of Ben Lawers to be seen from Firbush harbour.
