We're changing

We are creating a new public body, Historic Environment Scotland, which will come into effect from 1 October 2015. While we work on shaping our future we can reassure you that all services and products will continue as normal. We will continue to keep you up to date on developments. Please follow our progress and find out more about our new organisation.

Our priorities


Speedhill Footbridge, Anchor Mill, Paisley
Historic Scotland provides a number of grant and funding schemes to support bodies and individuals in the protection, education and promotion of the historic environment.

This section lists our funding programmes where you can find out more about our priorities and how to apply.

Our priorities

Decisions on grants are made on information gained from extensive public consultation, and are also influenced by the extent to which projects deliver benefits for communities, promote quality, develop knowledge and skills and build capacity for local heritage management.

Please note:  Our grants are in high demand, so we are not always able to offer a grant to every project
