Scottish Beekeepers Association

Site search:



The Scottish Beekeepers Association, founded in 1912, is the national beekeeping body for Scotland. We represent our members at national and international level.

The association was first registered as a Scottish charity in 1942, and became a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) on 9 December 2014.

The SBA is entirely independent of any other UK beekeeping associations. It does not employ any paid staff and so everyone who contributes to the work of the association is a  volunteer.
