Gazetteer for Scotland

Abstract / Description of output

The Gazetteer for Scotland is a vast geographical encyclopaedia, featuring details of towns, villages, bens and glens from the Scottish Borders to the Northern Isles. The first comprehensive gazetteer produced for Scotland since 1885, it includes tourist attractions, industries and historical sites, together with histories of family names and clans, biographies of famous Scots and descriptions of historical events associated with Scotland. The network of connections between all of these entries make this gazetteer unique. We have included the text of Groome's 19th Century Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland to provide a historical perspective on many of the places we describe.

With at least 27489 detailed entries, the Gazetteer is the largest dedicated Scottish resource created for the web, yet it is growing constantly, with some 6 entries added or updated in the last week alone. Please look at 'Gaz Stats' for more information.
