Merger - RCAHMS and Historic Scotland
In July 2012, Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs Fiona Hyslop announced that the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historic Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) and Historic Scotland should merge to become one body.
This decision followed a comprehensive options appraisal of RCAHMS to secure the best possible long-term future for the commission’s vital function and operations.
