The Centre for Mountain Studies (CMS) was established at Perth College UHI in August 2000, with the objective of creating a centre of excellence for work in mountain areas within the University of the Highlands and Islands.

With a focus on mountain environments and the people who depend on them, both in Scotland and internationally, the CMS has four main goals:

  • To undertake and communicate high-quality research;
  • To convene meetings to disseminate and discuss knowledge and to develop research agendas;
  • To contribute to informed policy-making processes;
  • To lead in the development and delivery of academic courses and training.

Find out more about Challenging Upland Futures, a forum to be held in Perth on 5 & 6 October 2021.  The aim of this event is to integrate knowledge and understanding on the uplands of Scotland, and to agree priority actions to help ensure that our uplands deliver the widest possible range of benefits.
