About the awards


The Scottish Heritage Angel Awards are supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. 

They were established in 2014. The first such awards in Scotland, the programme supports the delivery of the new Historic Environment Strategy, Our Place in Time, with its strong emphasis on community participation in heritage. The Awards will recognise the work of voluntary groups and individuals in protecting and celebrating our built heritage.

The Awards have 5 categories: click here to view them.

Fiona Hyslop, Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs said: "Scotland’s heritage is of us all and for us all, empowering, enriching and shaping our communities. The contribution of volunteers and voluntary groups to understanding, protecting and valuing our heritage is tremendous and I am delighted that the Scottish Heritage Angel Awards will recognise that good work.“This exciting new enterprise is unique in Scotland, and supports the delivery of the new Historic Environment Strategy, Our Place in Time. I hope it will inspire people to get involved in voluntary work which celebrates our heritage.”

The Awards complement the existing Angel Awards run by Historic England.

The Awards are run by a partnership of Historic Environment Scotland, Scottish Civic Trust, Scottish Government and Archaeology Scotland.
