Back to School

Thousands of young people across Scotland are to benefit from an extension to a scheme which makes school trips to Scottish heritage sites more accessible.

Trips to the New Lanark World Heritage Site are to be included in the educational travel scheme for the first time, helping schools deliver heritage education through active and outdoor learning - all in the context of Curriculum for Excellence.

School visits to all Historic Scotland properties and three iconic National Trust for Scotland sites (Bannockburn, Culloden and the Robert Burns’ Birthplace Museum) are also covered by the travel scheme, which is funded by the Scottish Government and administered by Historic Scotland.
