Scotland's Urban Past supports all kinds of projects which help people investigate, record, engage with and celebrate the heritage of our towns and cities.

Scotland's Urban Past (SUP) projects are created and led by community groups, with support from SUP staff and other creative professionals.

Does your community group or society have a project idea, or do you need inspiration? Let us know by contacting the SUP team at or on +44 (0)131 651 6870.
