A Guide To Climate Change Impacts

A document cover featuring a lighthouse on a cliff.

We want this guide on adapting Scotland’s historic places to the impacts of climate change to open up conversations.

It can be used to identify and share climate change adaptation solutions, demonstrating the resilience and adaptability of our historic environment.

The guide identifies many of the risks and hazards of climate change that are facing Scotland’s historic environment and offers owners, local communities and carers of historic sites routes to take action, to implement adaptation measures and enhance resilience to climate change.

Divided into seven distinct elements, the guide provides a tool for assessing the different hazards and levels of risk that threaten different types of sites in Scotland’s historic environment.

As an Our Place in Time publication, we’ve worked with partners from across the historic environment sector and beyond to develop the guide.
