Meet our Great Scots!

Great Scots!

Select each of our Great Scots above to find out more about the inspiring men and women who have shaped Scotland’s fascinating past.

Join us in supporting and celebrating some of Scotland’s most famous historical heroes, the places they lived, worked and their achievements which make up the very fabric of the nation we love.

The Great Scots appeal is aiming to raise the final £100,000 needed for urgent repairs to Burns Monument which was built between 1820-1823 to commemorate the first place Robert Burns drew breath. Any funds raised over this amount will go towards ensuring the stories of these Great Scots continue to be told for future generations.
