Our app is the best way to get information about Scotland’s iconic historic attractions on the move.

Packed with essential details and beautiful imagery for our 77 staffed properties – including admission price, opening times, facilities and location – our app will help you to research your next holiday or simply plan a day trip with the kids.

Intuitive and easy to use, the app allows you to search by region or interest, with ‘best for’ categories such as ‘families’, ‘gardens’, ‘picnics’ and ‘military history’ to choose from. You can also view all attractions on an interactive map of Scotland.

Not sure where you want to go? The app includes event information, articles and itinerary features, with new content added regularly to provide a source of inspiration. A view of Historic Scotland on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram gives you the latest ‘social buzz’ all in one place.
