Accessing Scotland's Past Project

'Accessing Scotland's Past' (ASP) was a pilot project undertaken by the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) in 2003?. ASP aimed to produce short descriptive account of many sites and buildings, and a guide to where further information can be discovered.

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, ASP ran as a 'proof of concept' for one year in a limited geographical area. The target areas chosen are the Cairngorms, in Aberdeenshire and Moray, and the Merse, in the Scottish Borders. The project is being run in partnership with the local authority archaeologists for Moray, Aberdeenshire Council and Scottish Borders Council.
