Scottish History Timeline

Whether its MacBeth or Hardie, the Reformation or Post-war Reconstruction, you are one click away from discovering Scotland's historical wealth.

It's all here - the people, places and events that made Scotland what it is today, in summary form as well as full feature overviews, linked to related places to visit, books and Great Scots. We've broken it down for you by century or by historical period, but you can also search with keywords like a person's name, a place, or even a specific year, which makes this timeline a handy reference for research.
