This dataset comprises the cultural World Heritage Sites for Scotland.
World Heritage Sites are described by UNESCO as exceptional places of "outstanding universal value" and "belonging to all the peoples of the world, irrespective of the territory on which they are located". Once a World Heritage Site is inscribed, under the Convention, member states have a duty to protect, conserve and present such sites for future generations.
