Non-Executive Advisors

The Chief Executive and Senior Management Team of Historic Scotland are advised by seven Non-Executive advisors who act as 'critical friends' providing challenge, support and advice.  Individual Non-Executive Advisors are involved in an advisory capacity with several of the agency's major initiatives.  The Non-Executive Advisors meet together every 6 months under the chairmanship of the Scottish Government's Director of Culture and Heritage.

Our Non-Executives have experience and knowledge that reflects our business and can offer a fresh perspective.  You can find out more about our Non-Executive Advisors below.
