About us

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.

 Pest ID Service

Icon Scotland Group, the National Trust for Scotland and Glasgow Life's pest identification service aids identification of the less common insect pests. Fill in the form and send it to the address on the form, together with the suspected insect pest. The insect MUST be well wrapped to avoid cross-contamination. Contact the Icon Scotland Group with any queries.
