The history of Scotland is intertwined with the history of Catholicism.

Whether it is the dramatic life of Mary Queen of Scots, the romanticism of the Jacobite cause, or the underground survival of Catholicism following the Reformation, many stories of Scotland’s past are inextricably linked to Catholicism.

The Scottish Catholic Heritage Collections Trust seeks to share these pivotal stories with the public through its world-renowned collections.
