Scottish Area Council

CIRO Scotland Area Council has members from across the beautiful country of Scotland, from the busy cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow to the picturesque scenery of the Scottish Highlands.

The council is looking forward to expanding our membership base and gaining more highly skilled and seasoned rail professionals to its community. For its members, the council will be hosting several events throughout the year focusing on different specialisms, new directives and ideas, as well as providing great opportunities for its members to socialise and network with other rail professionals and experts in their fields.
