We were going to call this forum Historic Scotland but decided to just call it Historic Places as there is of course an Historic Scotland government department.

This forum is for discussions on Historic Places in Scotland be they old Castles such as Edinburgh Castle or stone age forts.

We hope to get some regular information sent into us which we'll share in here.

That said if you have visited any of Scotland's historic properties we'd love to learn what you thought of them.

You may of course share information on other historic properties anywhere in the world which is another reason for just calling this forum Historic Places.

Electric Scotland has a section for Historic Places in Scotland at http://www.electricscotland.com/historic/index.html
