Validity of Data
The information in the SMR is derived from a variety of sources and is believed to be correct. However the SMR is subject to update as knowledge and interpretation develops, additional research is done and new features and sites are discovered: so the validity of the data contained within it cannot be guaranteed.
Access to Sites
Most sites included on the SMR are not open to the public. Many are on private land and permission to visit must always be sought from the landowner or tenant.
Legal and other Protection of Sites
Many of the sites and buildings included in the SMR are protected by law and it is a criminal offence to damage them. It is also an offence to use a metal detector on a Scheduled Ancient Monument or on land in the ownership of Aberdeen City Council.
Development Control, Planning and Agricultural Schemes
The on-line SMR is not intended as a tool for planning, development control, public utility or agri-environment purposes. All enquiries related to such schemes should be directed to the Keeper of Archaeology at the address above.
