Scotland is currently covered by 4 fungus groups, each of which promotes the appreciation and survey of fungi in their area. As can be seen from the map below, however, large areas of the country remain uncovered by the scheduled activities of the extant groups. We really could do with the formation of a Dumfries and Galloway Group, a Perth and Angus Group and a Highlands and Islands Group. If anybody out there is interested in forming groups in these or other areas (we are a bit stretched with the likes of Kintyre) please contact any of us here on the Hub and we will be glad to help you with planning and advice.
Description: Since 1997 we have grown to a membership of over 40 and run a variety of workshops and forays mostly in the late summer and autumn. Most of these events take place in Moray and Aberdeenshire but our weekend meetings have taken us as far away as Bettyhill near Thurso, Speyside, Fife and Perthshire.

Description: This sub-group to the Highland Biological Recording Group has been set up in 2013 to encourage fungus recording in the Highland region. Forays are opportunities for people with a common interest in fungi to share knowledge and experience rather than expert led forays. All welcome!

Description: This group was launched at the end of April 2010 to serve Ayrshire and the Clyde Isles, Argyll, the Glasgow metropolitan area and its surrounding shires: Lanark, Renfrew, Dunbarton and Stirling.
Leader: Graeme Walker
Recorder: Dick Peebles
Secretary: Gill Smart
Most of the sites we visit are in West-, Mid- and East-Lothian, but we interpret SE Scotland liberally, and have had forays in the Borders, Fife, Kinross, Clackmannan and Stirling. We have a few ‘experts’, a few keen members and a few irregulars
