Historic Scotland sign strategy

Making a lasting impression
The Historic Scotland sign strategy is now in its third year of national implementation, having successfully delivered significant improvements to visitor communication and interpretation at over 50 of the most important historic sites in Scotland.

Attention to detail across all graphic and physical display solutions, sensitivity to site context and impeccable build quality has been met with unanimous praise from staff and visitors alike.

Specially commissioned illustrations help create a compelling sense of place, and engage both old and young visitors with powerful stories of the past.

A comprehensive design manual provides detailed specifications on all aspects of the new sign strategy, enabling Historic Scotland to manage a long-term roll-out programme across every one of the 345 sites under their care.
