The Scottish Ironwork Foundation…

… was set up “To promote historic architectural ironwork made or found in Scotland”

The group’s public presence is most up-to-date on their Facebook page. Unfortunately, their web-based database of Scottish ironwork was destroyed by a hacker and has not yet been rebuilt,  but you can get some information about them on their website.

Scran is another Scottish institution, a service of the Scottish charity Historic Environment Scotland.
According to their website:

“Scran aims to provide educational access to digital materials representing our material culture and history. We host images, movies and sounds from museums, galleries, archives and the media and we are one of the largest educational online services in the UK supporting thousands of schools, libraries, colleges and universities.
We work in partnership with over 300 cultural institutions in Scotland and the rest of the UK. A number of institutions use our online solution – Scran-in-a-Box – to provide access to their own data. Scran is funded through grant aid from the Scottish Government, subscriptions and sales of services.”
