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.

Make a request for personal information

Devorgilla's Bridge, Dumfries
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you have the right to ask us whether we process any personal information relating to you and if so to provide you with a copy of this information. This is called a subject access request.

To request your personal information from Historic Scotland you should write to the Data Protection Officer.

Your request should include a contact address and documented evidence of who you are (e.g. copies of your driving licence, passport or birth certificate).

You should provide as much detail as possible regarding the information you wish to access. We may come back to you for additional details in order to locate the material you require.


We will require payment of a fee of £10 from you before we start to search for your information.

We will aim to meet your request within 40 days of receiving from you all of the above information and payment of the £10 fee.
