A Spotter’s Guide: Scotland’s Historic High Streets
Thursday 25 March 2021
We all have memories connected to our high streets. But our high streets are more than just our memories. In this blog, take a trip down Scotland’s historic high streets and learn how to spot the historic features that make traditional shopfronts so special.
Scotland’s towns, villages and cities tell the story of trade, innovation and creativity through their shops. Here we take at a look at some of Scotland's shops through the centuries.
The Engine Shed has been supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery players, we have been able to create Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. It enables us to encourage understanding of traditional building materials and skills among the public and professionals and raise standards in conservation for traditional buildings.
