About us


The Friends of the Forfar Botanists are a community group.  We are very proud of the group of botanists who came from our wee town.  Our aim is to promote the memory of these intrepid men and their achievements. Hopefully it will be an inspiration to the young people of Forfar today, to try to achieve excellence in their chosen fields.
