This survey usually takes 5-10 minutes to complete.

Why HES Are Consulting

The What’s Your Heritage? campaign asked people from all over the country how Scotland’s places, buildings and monuments should be recognised and celebrated.

Feedback from over 2000 responses to What’s Your Heritage? told HES that people wanted to achieve recognition for the heritage that matters to them.

Talking About Heritage is part of the HES response to this.
