Download our spatial datasets for use within a compatible Geographical Information System. Our data is updated regularly and provided in a zipped ESRI shapefile format - all datasets are available to download as a national cover.
If you have any questions on our GIS downloads, please email email@example.com
In order to download datasets, you must read and agree to the One Scotland Mapping Agreement: Schedule 5 - End User Licence as detailed below.
Please note that the ESRI shapefiles provided can only be used in conjunction with appropriate mapping software and not in a standalone capacity. Historic Scotland cannot provide technical assistance outwith the distribution of these shapefiles. However, you may find it helpful to visit the PASTMAP website which gives web-based access to several of these datasets (this is free, but requires registration).
