Explore … Scotland’s Protected Places

Scotland’s Protected Placesis a new website to encourage the people of Scotland and our visitors to get out and explore the best of our natural and cultural heritage, much of which is found in Scotland’s protected places.


This is a joint contribution by Scottish Natural Heritage and Historic Scotland, in the Year of Natural Scotland, to raising awareness of our protected places for nature and history and supporting socio-economic development based on sustainable use of these special places.


The website provides a map-based directory to over 500 places to visit and a brief overview of Scotland’s heritage. For those looking for more details of designations there are links to the SNH and HS websites.


Realising economic benefits from protected areas is a key part of this initiative. There are limitations on how far a publicly-provided website may promote commercial interests but SNH would be keen to explore the options with you. If you have a property you would like featured on the website, please contact Stewart Pritchard, Scottish Natural Heritage e. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

To be listed, your property must be a protected place (that is have some recognised designation), there must be some provision for visitors, from something as simple as a car park and footpath, and a web address for prospective visitors to find out what there is to see and what facilities to expect.
