The remit of Historic Scotland’s TCRE Group is to improve
the quality and standards of conservation work on Scotland’s
built heritage. It operates within two Divisions – the Historic
Scotland Conservation Bureau (HSCB), based in Longmore
House, and the Historic Scotland Conservation Centre (HSCC),
based at Stenhouse and South Gyle, Edinburgh.
HISTORIC SCOTLAND CONSERVATION BUREAU (HSCB)
Research, Education and Publications
The integrated research and education programme aims to address the issue of loss
to the built environment. It does this through commissioned research and negotiated
partnerships, leading to the publication of a wide range of technical material. This is
supported by a close working relationship with leading professional and industry bodies,
educational institutes and training centres. Promoting and supporting the development
of specialist, professional, technical and craft skills; the Bureau is also addressing the
availability of traditional building material supplies.
The Enquiry Service
A central point of contact for the public and professionals for information on all aspects
of building conservation in Scotland.
A telephone call or email to our enquiry service can provide you with:
• Technical guidance on building conservation matters
• Details of training opportunities in traditional craft skills
• Contact details of contractors and consultants involved in building repair and
maintenance in your area.
Contact the Enquiry Service on Tel: 0131 668 8668 or
Email: hs.conservation.bureau@scotland.gsi.gov.uk
The Resource Centre
The Bureau maintains, and is developing, a conservation support Resource Centre. This
facility contains related books, periodicals, supplier information and audiovisual material.
The Resource Centre is open for consultation and use on an appointment basis.

HISTORIC SCOTLAND’S CONSERVATION CENTRE (HSCC)
The Conservation Centre leads the field in all aspects of practical and preventative
conservation for the built environment in Scotland. Conservators specialise in stone, easel
paintings, wall paintings, environmental monitoring and the analysis of historic decorative
schemes. The Centre primarily provides specialist conservation advice to other groups in

Research Report: Cost Action C17: Built Heritage
Fire Loss to Historic Buildings – Final Report
Consisting of 3 parts, the Final Report of the recently
completed European Science Foundation Research Project
COST Action C17 “Fire Loss to Historic Buildings” has
just been published. Presented as 2 volumes, with a
shorter Executive Summary of the Action, findings and
recommendations, all are combined and contained in a slip
case.
The Action involved participants from 20 countries and had
a key objective in the definition, at a European level, of the
degree of loss to built heritage through the effects of fire, and the
promotion of remedial actions and recommendations to combat this using minimal
invasive techniques.
In order to achieve these aims 4 Working Groups addressed: Data, loss statistics
and evaluating risks: Available and developing technology: Cultural and financial
value: and Property management strategies. The resulting publication provides their
extensive findings to give a comprehensive guide to fire loss statistics; fire detection
and suppression technology; insurance and strategies to cope with fire; and the fire
threat. The report findings are vital to anyone who has an interest in the prevention of
fire in the built environment throughout Europe.

relating to Maintaining Sash and Case Windows, Damp Causes and
Solutions, Domestic Decorative Glass, The Use of Lime and Cement in
Traditional Buildings, Repairing Brickwork, Ceramic Tiled Flooring, Pantiles
Maintaining a Pantiled Roof. In the coming months, future guides will be

aim is to provide concise and accessible information free from jargon, with
useful contacts for those seeking additional information.

Research Report: NHTG (National Heritage Training Group)-
Traditional Building Craft Skills
A shortage of skilled craftspeople throughout the UK has highlighted
the need for strong action to prevent further erosion of our skills
base. The formation of the National Heritage Training Group (NHTG) in
2002 was pivotal in shaping and coordinating the strategy to address
these problems. Perhaps the most important action by this group
was to commission skills mapping research in each of the four home
countries – to fill information gaps on the scope, depth and breadth
of labour and skills within this sector. As part of that process, this
report is the first ever detailed labour and skills needs analysis of this
sector of the construction industry in Scotland. We cannot highlight
trends or make accurate forecasts, but have established a benchmark
against which we can measure and quantify our progress. A PDF
version is also available at www.nhtg.org.uk

The Group oversees the interests of the historic environment within the
planning system and carries out Historic Scotland's responsibilities for Strategic
Environmental Assessment and Environment Impact Assessment. The Group is
divided into four teams:
National Policy Team - Enquiry point Tel: 0131 668 8985

THE INSPECTORATE provides expert support to Scottish Ministers on the
identification, protection, conservation and management of Scotland’s historic
buildings, historic landscapes and archaeological sites. The Inspectorate’s work
includes thematic and area-based surveys to identify those worthy of statutory
protection through listing and scheduling. Once these are protected, staff work
closely with planning authorities, owners, developers and many other bodies to
ensure that, where change is necessary, this does not adversely affect these

The ‘SHEP’ series sets out Scottish Ministers' strategic
policies for the historic environment and provides greater

vision for the future; it also brings together a great deal of
existing policy in a single publication. It provides, for the first
time, a framework for the day-to-day work of organisations
that have a role and interest in managing the historic
environment. These include the Scottish Government, local
authorities and the range of bodies that is accountable to
Scottish Ministers, including Historic Scotland.

metal detecting
yes or no?
Metal detecting, scheduled
ancient monuments
and the law
Many people own and use metal detectors in Scotland.
This leaflet offers simple advice for land owners,
occupiers and managers about what to do when asked for
permission to detect on a given piece of land. It does not
attempt to deal with the rights and wrongs of metal
detecting: some archaeologists are strongly against it
while others believe that responsible detecting has a place
in archaeological research. This leaflet attempts to set out
the legal position in non-legal terms, and seeks the co-
operation of all to ensure that monuments are protected as
the law intends.
