LES Scotland

LES Scotland is one of 7 regional branches of LES Britain & Ireland, yet attracts visitors to its events from across the UK and Europe - in particular to the celebrated LES Scotland Burns Supper, a heady mix of national pride, professional ethics and good old fashioned fun, washed down with neeps, tatties and more than a few "wee drams" !!

LES Scotland offers all the usual networking benefits of LES, and an annual meetings programme of 3 or 4 evening meetings a year, each featuring usually three themed presentations.


For all things regarding the LES in Scotland, your primary contact is our Chair, Mr Stephen Robertson



The next LES Scotland meeting will be:
