We're changing

We have created a new public body, Historic Environment Scotland. While we work on shaping our future we can reassure you that all services and products will continue as normal. Please follow our progress and find out more about our new organisation.

How to find what is scheduled

There are two ways to locate scheduled monuments:

Search by keyword, name, council, classification

Current information on monuments contained in the Schedule is available from Historic Scotland’s data website.

Here you can download maps and copies of the legal documentation for each scheduled monument and our designation spatial datasets for GIS use, as well as find out about other types of designation, such as Listing.

Search by map on PASTMAP

PASTMAP is a website where you can display and search information on Scotland's historic environment. You can:

  • Display an indication of the boundaries of scheduled monuments; you should not rely on this information to determine the actual boundary.
  • Download copies of legal documents. These are the documents that must be used to determine what is scheduled.
  • Search by zooming into the map, selecting from a list of place names or by using postcodes.

Please note that scheduling gives no rights of public access. Nor does it change the wide-ranging provisions for public access in the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. Members of the public, and this includes archaeology students or professionals, should always seek permission from the owner and/or occupier in the normal way.
