Scheduled Monuments (HES WMS)

What is it: 

A scheduled monument is a monument of national importance that Scottish Ministers have given protection under the Ancient Monuments and Archaeological Areas Act 1979.

Although the majority are on land, a small number lie under the sea, for example 7 wrecks of the German High Seas fleet in Scapa Flow.
