Perth and Kinross Historic Environment Record

Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust maintains the Historic Environment Record (HER) for Perth and Kinross. This searchable database contains information of over 17,000 records of archaeological monuments, historic buildings, artefact find spots and significant places. Information is also held on statutory and non-statutory designations for the historic environment (Scheduled Monuments, Listed Buildings, Gardens and Designed Landscapes and Conservation Areas) and on events (e.g. archaeological fieldwork) carried out within Perth & Kinross.

The PKHER is open for public research and commercial enquiries. Public research enquires are free of charge. The PKHER Access to Information and Charging Policy gives detail of how to make an enquiry. PKHER geographical information (GI) is available for viewing on Pastmap.
