Join us in coastal heritage surveys of your area

We are currently planning our surveys of 2023. We welcome volunteers on the surveys. They are wonderful ways of discovering the hidden history of your coast and sharing your knowledge of it with others. The results of the surveys are submitted to Scotland’s regional and national historic environment databases.

Watch this space for notifications of what’s coming up, and feel free to drop us a line to say you are interested in being kept in touch.

What’s involved?

The surveys involve walking the coast and using the SCAPE app to update records of existing sites and record new ones. We organise two to four days of survey, to coincide with low tides. We walk around 6-8km of coastline and are out for about 5 hours.  The surveys will vary in ease of access and terrain. If you register your interest, we will tell you about the detailed routes and times a week or two before a survey so that you can choose which ones you would like to join. No experience is required, and we will help you out with everything you need to know.

How to get involved

Contact Joanna  and Sarah if you’d like further information about the October surveys.
