Parkour in other parts of Scotland
As far as we are aware there aren’t many women’s only parkour classes in Scotland. However there are plenty of mixed classes and jams going on at which girls are of course welcome. There is a facebook group for Scottish parkour women (please only join if you are a woman interested in parkour in Scotland).
Edinburgh Parkour and Access Parkour
Edinburgh has had a long jam culture through Edinburgh Parkour, which you can find out about here: http://ed-pk.com/. As of January 2014, Access Parkour will be launching and bringing classes to Edinburgh. You can check them out here: http://www.accessparkour.com/
Fife Parkour Coaching(St Andrews, Kirkcaldy, Methil)
These guys run a series of classes for both youth and adults practitioners across Fife. Details can be found on their facebook page http://www.facebook.com/FifeParkour
Frevolution Parkour Inverness
Plenty of classes going on in Inverness and you get to train at a castle which is pretty cool. They hosted a highly successful Highland Gathering in 2013, and there are plans to make it a yearly event. Details here: http://www.freevolutionpk.com/
Again Coatbridge is also really busy with lots of classes going on and they also have a nice wee parkour park too. Check out their facebook page for information: http://www.facebook.com/CoatbridgeParkour?fref=ts
Northen Focus Parkour Shetland
Shetland has a really large female community and plenty of beautiful spots and places to train. They host the annual Shetland Parkour Experience, which allows practitioners a weekend of training with some of the best coaches in the UK, in an amazing location. You can find out more about them at http://www.facebook.com/groups/northernfocus/
Aberdeen also has a nice community with regular youth and adult classes and also a conditioning class. They are, at the moment, the only other community with a girls’ class. Details here http://www.aberdeenparkour.co.uk/
