Following the advice of UK and Scottish Governments, NCAP has now returned to limited operations in our offices.

We are now able to process orders for not-yet-digitised aerial imagery, to revised delivery timescales.

Essential Maintenance

HES is currently undertaking essential maintenance on our web services. This will limit access to services in the following ways:

- Subscription access for HES online services will be unavailable (Scran, NCAP)

- Image purchasing options will be limited (Canmore, Britain from Above, Scran, NCAP)

- Any enhanced services which require a log in will be unavailable (My Canmore, Britain from Above contributions, Scran contribute)


General access to these services will all continue. Enquiries will still be able to be submitted.

We anticipate services to be restored from Monday 1st February 2021.




Guide to the Finding Aid Record page

Once your search results are returned, individual finding aids can be examined. Each finding aid appears with an accompanying location map.


Subscribers can zoom-and-pan them to identify which of our millions of undigitised aerial photographs cover their specific area of interest. Photo frame numbers can then be added to the notepad area, which links through to the order form. When ordering images directly from finding aids, we recommend that you order the image you want plus the images on either side, to ensure that coverage of your area of interest is achieved. We cannot guarantee the absolute accuracy of the footprints depicted on finding aids.
