Elmwood to be nature organisation’s new home

29 April 2019

NatureScot staff moved to a new location in Cupar today on the Scottish Rural College’s (SRUC) Elmwood Campus.

The NatureScot Cupar office, formerly on the Crossgate, has been looking for a new office space for a number of years. The 16 staff have now moved into a refurbished space at Elmwood, formerly a children’s nursery.

Rhona McInroy, NatureScot operations manager in Cupar, said:

“Our move is an important part of our commitment to continue working to protect and improve Fife’s nature for even more people to enjoy – and when organisations share facilities, it reduces costs and carbon emissions too.  Now we’re neighbours, we look forward to working more regularly with SRUC.”

Prof Caroline Argo, Dean of SRUC’s North Faculty, added:

“We are delighted to welcome the team from NatureScot to Elmwood. The presence of NatureScot at Elmwood demonstrates our commitment to Fife and it creates new opportunities for our students. We have exciting plans to become a 21st century rural enterprise university and partnerships with organisations like NatureScot are an integral part of our future.”

NatureScot has 35 offices throughout Scotland. In the past five years, NatureScot has reduced its office carbon footprint by over 26%, with changes such as co-locations with other public bodies.
