Scottish Heritage Angel Awards

The Scottish Heritage Angel Awards are supported by the Andrew Lloyd Webber Foundation. 

They were established in 2014. The first such awards in Scotland, the programme supports the delivery of the new Historic Environment Strategy, Our Place in Time, with its strong emphasis on community participation in heritage.

The Awards celebrate the efforts of people who go to extraordinary lengths to protect, save, record and share their local heritage.   They recognise people who champion their local heritage and share and practise forgotten craft skills. They also celebrate young people, recognising their efforts to learn about heritage.

The Awards have four categories:

  • Best Rescue of a Historic Building
  • Best Contribution to a Heritage Project by Young People
  • Best Craftsmanship or Apprentice on a Heritage Rescue or Repair Project
  • Best Rescue, Recording or Interpretation of a Historic Place

Entries for the Angel Awards are assessed by a panel of experts and volunteers from within the heritage sector before a shortlist will be put before the judges, who choose an overall winner from each category. The winners are then announced at a special awards ceremony.

The Awards complement the existing Historic England Angel Awards and the new  Heritage Angel Awards for Northern Ireland.

The Scottish Heritage Angel Awards are run by a partnership of Scottish Civic Trust, Historic Environment Scotland, Scottish Government and Archaeology Scotland. Scottish Civic Trust is the main delivery partner.
