What is the Inventory?

Scene of the Jacobite Charge, Killiecrankie
Recognising that battlefields are a distinctive aspect of our historic environment, and in line with the Scottish Historic Environment Policy, Historic Environment Scotland compiles and maintains an Inventory of Historic Battlefields.

The Inventory of Historic Battlefields is a list of nationally important battlefields in Scotland that meet the criteria published in SHEP.  It provides information on the sites in it to raise awareness of their significance and assist in their protection and management for the future.  It is a major resource for enhancing the understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of battlefields, for promoting education and stimulating further research, and for developing their potential as attractions for visitors.
