Images of Scotland

Anyone interested in Scotland is likely to like this: scotlandsimages.com is a unique new images resource drawn from Scotland’s national collections: The National Archives; The National LIbrary; the National Museums; the National Trust for Scotland; and the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments. Between them they ought to be able to rustle up a few good pics!

From my brief but highly enjoyable looks around so far I have to say it’s a far superior site than one has come to expect from official bodies. Usage is licensed, so the larger sized images are understandably watermarked. But you can search and browse freely without having to register. And anyone can register free for extra facilities. In other words, a big thumbs-up.

It’s one of those things I liked so much I just wanted to share. Enjoy.

We are starting a new magazine on Scottish Clans and need some photos where can I get them free?
