Above Scotland


HES holds the National Collection of aerial photography for Scotland with millions of images dating from the 1920s to the present day. 

These photographs – many of which have never been seen before by the public – tell the remarkable story of a changing nation, from stone circles, Roman remains and ruined castles, to the growth of villages, towns and cities, the rise and fall of heavy industry, the country at war and the proud engineering and architecture of the modern landscape. 

By David Cowley and James Crawford
