Ancient monument grants
The Ancient Monuments Grants programme provides financial assistance to help preserve and maintain monuments, and in some cases to present them to the public.
Grants can be offered to owners of monuments, land managers or to other bodies acting with the owners written approval.

Managing Scheduled Monuments via the Scottish Rural Development Programme
Over 80% are located on agricultural land and are affected by land management practices. There is no specific funding for management works on scheduled monuments via the Scottish Rural Development Programme
However, a number of management options and capital items have the potential to offer dual benefits to both the environment and the long term management of scheduled monuments. Where proposed works meet environmental criteria, but also include a scheduled monument for which the works will be beneficial, additional points may be gained in recognition of the multiple benefits offered. A public access option
is also available to enable existing paths to scheduled monuments to be upgraded, and new paths to be created.
