The Scottish Industrial Heritage Society (SIHS) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) dedicated to the protection, preservation, study and appreciation of Scotland’s historic buildings. We bring together people interested in discovering and understanding Scotland’s industrial past.

We organise seminars, conferences and visits to sites of industrial heritage interest through Scotland. The Society publishes a quarterly magazine covering recent and future activities, as well as short articles on industrial history and heritage
The Society supports the preservation and recording of Scotland’s Industrial past and is affiliated to the Association for Industrial Archaeology.
