Welcome to Secret Scotland
Secret Scotland aims to provide a common resource where secret, hidden or otherwise notable Points of Interest around Scotland may be recorded and shared, and is modelled after the class-leading format of Wikipedia.
If you have an interesting subject of local interest, then please consider sparing a moment to add a page, to help expand and support this site.
Thanks to spammers, you may or may not be randomly asked for a password if you attempt to edit a page. Merely enter the required response to continue. The required response is currently: sesco
There are four resources available to help with this aim:
- This Wiki where anyone may create and save pages
- The Forum, where site content may be discussed
- The Blog, where news, announcements, and interesting items are posted as required
- Our Photo Pool in Flickr, where members may share interesting images
Secret Scotland can also be found on Twitter, where news alerts and items that are currently too short to justify inclusion in one of the more formal options listed above can be posted quickly.
It's also where alerts regarding any site problems or outages will be posted, usually with more details in the Blog.
By secret or hidden, we're really just referring to anything that might be described as lost, unknown, uninvestigated, unexplained, undiscovered, unexplored, forgotten, undisclosed, underground, subterranean, camouflaged, disguised, suppressed, or similar. In simple terms, it could just be something (or somewhere) that's just a bit out of the ordinary, and might not be noticed if not highlighted. As inspiration, these are a few of the existing Categories :
"A nation that forgets its past has no future."
