HES is the new body overseeing the management and protection of Scotland’s heritage. It became fully operational on 1 October 2015, bringing together the functions of Historic Scotland and the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (RCAHMS) in a single organisation.

HES advises on wide ranging historic building matters and has a statutory role in determining applications affecting the demolition of buildings which are listed or in conservation areas, and the alteration of category A and B listed buildings. It also offers several grant schemes, provides technical advice, and is responsible for the management and presentation of historic properties in the nation's care.

The archives (formerly maintained by RCAHMS) provides unique insights into Scotland’s places, documenting how the nation’s archaeological, industrial and architectural environment has changed over time. They can be accessed online at through the Canmore website, or at the HES Search room, John Sinclair House, 16 Bernard Terrace, Edinburgh EH8 9NX.
