Our Past, Our Future (OPOF)

The historic environment is one of Scotland’s most precious assets.

Our Past, Our Future was published in 2023 and is the refreshed five-year strategy for Scotland’s historic environment. OPOF replaced the previous strategy for Scotland’s historic environment; Our Place in Time (OPiT).

You can find the strategy microsite here,   Our Past, Our Future.


On these pages you can find out detailed information about the mission and three key priority areas.

Currently the Steering Group has been formed and more information can be found on the organisations in the steering group, and future delivery plans, here.
