Inventory of designed gardens and landscapes






Historic Scotland has now made its fascinating ‘Inventory of designed gardens and landscapes’ available online. The Inventory is a detailed record of 3000 nationally-important such places across Scotland. For each, it provides illustrations, plus information such as why the site is worth protecting, location, setting, history and landscape components. Works of art and architectural features are commented on, and the Inventory can be searched by map, name, keyword and region.
