To ask the Scottish Government how it is supporting Historic Environment Scotland in its efforts to preserve historic buildings.
In 2023-24 we are providing Historic Environment Scotland with £72.7m in funding, which is 82.6% higher than the £39.8m level of support before the impact of the pandemic in 2019/20. As its commercial income continues to recover strongly from the impact of the pandemic, this will ensure it can continue to care for our heritage in communities across Scotland.
