Hamilton Palace - a virtual reconstruction
 


This website is the first stage of a longer term research project to provide more information about one of Scotland's most famous lost buildings, its magnificent contents and its occupants throughout the centuries.

The ultimate aim is to recreate the Palace in a virtual world and bring back together the unique collections of paintings, furniture and objets d'art which have since been dispersed to become the treasures of museums around the world and to set these in their historical and cultural contexts through a series of research projects and the publication of related archive materials.

This project is being undertaken by the Virtual Hamilton Palace Trust which includes experts in the field and representatives of a number of Scotland's leading cultural institutions. This website has been created with a grant from the New Opportunities Fund through the Resources for Learning in Scotland scheme in association with Scran. It has been undertaken with the co-operation of a number of institutions and individuals led by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland under the overall direction of the Trust.
