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/

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/
