See Edinburgh Castle in 3D with new Historic Environment Scotland model

04 September 2020
Historic Environment Scotland is inviting people around the world to see the iconic castle in a new way through its new 3D model - see it here!

Led by HES’s Digital Innovation and Digital Documentation Teams based at the Engine Shed in Stirling and working with Interpretation colleagues the 3D model has been populated with information giving the virtual visitor an immersive digital tour of the Castle and gives the chance to explore hidden parts of the castle.

The model was created using laser scan data captured as part of the Rae project which aims to accurately digitally document over 300 heritage sites and collections in HES’ care. These digital innovations are crucial in helping to understand, conserve and tell the stories of our historic sites.
