In Scotland, nationally important sites are listed and described in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes, compiled and maintained by Historic Environment Scotland. However, there are hundreds of other gardens and sites, not on the Inventory, which are of regional and local significance.

Scotland's Garden and Landscape Heritage (SGLH) promotes the study and protection of these non-designated historic gardens and designed landscapes, and trains volunteers to record them.  SGLH was formed in 2015 as the result of the merger of the Garden History Society in Scotland and the Garden History Society in Scotland Conservation Trust.

Chloe Bennett is Chair of SGLH and is a landscape historian with a particular interest in public parks and twentieth century landscapes.

Anna Hardstaff is a volunteer who worked on the Glorious Gardens project in the Falkirk area.
