Who deserves a plaque?

Historic Environment Scotland are asking people which figures from history they would like to see celebrated with a Commemorative Plaque.

Nominations are now open for the national Commemorative Plaque Scheme.

Now in its fourth year, the scheme has seen diverse figures from Scottish history remembered – from famous inventors like James Watt and John Logie Baird. Famous Scots are nominated by the public using an online form, then celebrated by the installation of a plaque on a building connected with their achievements.

The scheme is intended to celebrate the life and work of significant persons from history by highlighting the link between them and a building connected with their work or life. This highlights not only the life of the person, but gives insight into the social history of local architecture. Does anyone across Kincardine and Mearns warrant a plaque?

Submit a nomination via www.historic-scotland.gov.uk/commemorativeplaques. The process is an open theme, meaning nominations will be accepted for any persons whose life and achievements have made a significant difference to Scotland and its people.
