Scotland has a long tradition of using thatch, and one of the most diverse ranges of thatching materials and techniques found in Europe. In some parts of the country the local traditions of thatching continued until the beginning of the 20th century. However, since then, thatched buildings have largely disappeared from the rural landscape in many parts of Scotland. This survey is the essential first step in identifying the type and quality of thatched buildings which remain, so that skills and resources can be directed most effectively.
