"Scotland has a unique contribution to make to UNESCO’s vision of building peace, eradicating poverty and promoting sustainable development and intercultural dialogue through education, the sciences, culture and communication." Quote: UNESCO Scotland webpage.
The UK National Commission for UNESCO- United Nations Educational, Scientificand Cultural Organsiation- highlights and supports sites that are of great importance to world heritage. Scotland's history is diverse and as such there are five sites that are recognised and supported by UNESCO. These are The Heart of Neolithic Orkney, St. Kilda, the Antonine Wall, New Lanark and Edinburgh's Old and New Towns. There are also several bids for proposed new UNESCO sites in Scotland at present.

There are of course many sites in Scotland and in Glasgow itself that are already recognised by the city and its visitors. Information on these can found throughout the Historic Glasgow website.
