Abstract: This report is submitted by HEACS, the Historic Environment Advisory Council for Scotland, which was established in 2003 to provide Scottish Ministers with strategic advice on issues affecting the historic environment. In its second term HEACS was asked by the Scottish Ministers: To identify for Scottish Ministers the economic impact of the historic environment in Scotland. In 2008 HEACS commissioned an economic impact study of the historic environment from ECOTEC Research and Consulting Ltd. The Project Steering Group comprised the HEACS Economic Significance Working Group, augmented by economists from the Scottish Government and the Fraser of Allander Institute. The project also benefited from close liaison with Historic Scotland throughout. The primary aim of the economic impact study was that it should establish for the first time a robust set of estimates for the economic contribution of Scotland's historic environment to the nation's economy. The remit of the project was tightly drawn in order to ensure that the Government and wider sector could have confidence in the results. The results of this study should therefore be regarded as a conservative assessment of the economic contribution of the historic environment in Scotland. This HEACS report is intended to be read as an introduction to and in conjunction with the ECOTEC report, Economic Impact of the Historic Environment in Scotland, which is also submitted in its entirety to the Scottish Ministers.
