Scotland's Places

A new "mash-up" resource has been created by the National Archives of Scotland and the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments.  It is called Scotland's Places and it allows you to search by a location and then bring up information about the said place from these resources:

  • Maps and plans of cities, towns, villages, farms, roads, canals, harbours, churches, schools, public buildings, private houses, mines and quarries.
  • Photographs of the built environment in The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland.
  • Archaeological reports on historic and prehistoric sites.
  • Manuscript records and printed books from millions of pages in government and private records, including tax rolls, owners of land and heritages, and the annual reports of county Medical Officers of Health.

 This is one of those sites that you can lose hours in.
