This section provides further information and detailed guidance to help you explore, record, and learn more about rock art in Scotland, and elsewhere in the world. 


Rock art has the power to capture young people's imagination. It can be a fertile ground for learning about how people made sense of their world in the past, and how prehistoric beliefs were expressed and shared widely. This section promotes a learning resource focusing on rock art, produced by Forestry and Land Scotland.



You can download all our Guidance Notes from this section. These documents provide detailed information to help you prepare for your fieldwork, identify, record and photograph rock art, and create 3D models.
