Explore Scotland’s urban past and the places that matter to community groups around the country in this free digital exhibition. Climb Ayr’s tallest tower, test your skills in the first skate park to be added to the National Record of the Historic Environment, and see Arbroath Abbey as it was in medieval times all in the one place.

Since 2014, Scotland’s Urban Past (SUP) has been helping people all over the country to explore the stories behind the urban places they love best.

SUP has worked with thousands of people sharing skills, from photography and oral history recording to using maps and undertaking surveys.

Past Forward – Stories of Urban Scotland celebrates this work with an interactive journey through the history of Scotland’s towns and cities, allowing you to experience some of the nation’s secret urban spaces without leaving the exhibition.
