The mission of RCAHMS is to help people to value and enjoy their surroundings, to provide a world-class record of the historic and built environment to local, national and international audiences, as well as advancing understanding of the human influence on Scotland’s places from earliest times to the present day. We achieve this through strategic field investigation, research and our dynamic national collection, which together provide a unique, authoritative and internationally important resource for the study and management of the historic and built environment. This is achieved by identifying, surveying and analysing the historic and built environment of Scotland as well as preserving, caring and adding to the information and items in its national collection.
