Mary Cairncross Meeting Room

Located on the first floor, The Mary Cairncross Meeting Room (MCMR) is easily accessible by lift or stairs and sits up to 12 people.  Being one of our smaller rooms, it is ideal for more intimate group meetings or presentations and is ideal for conducting small-group learning and professional interviews.

Catering: We can also provide refreshments and lunches for your meeting, including sandwiches, fruit, fruit-juices, traybakes, teas, coffees, and biscuits.  Catering is competitively priced and starts from just £2 per person. We order lunch from Giraffe Café, a charity based in Perth. Please let us know in advance if you have other arrangements for catering.
