We are testing a new beta website for gov.scot go to new site


This is an archived section of the Scottish Government website. External links, forms and search may not work on archived pages and content/contact details are likely to be out of date.


1. Web Pages

If you are using a modern web browser that understands 'style sheets' (css) then when you print any recent web page on this site, you will automatically get a stripped down 'printer ready' version of the page which excludes most of the menus, side bars and other navigational aids in order to focus on the page content.

2. Publications

The majority of publications will include a PDF version which is a more accurate representation of the appearance of the printed publication than the browsable web pages. The PDF version also contains all pages of the publication (except for very large or graphic intense publications which will be split across multiple PDFs) making it more convenient for printing.
