.scot is a top-level domain for Scotland and Scottish culture, including the Gaelic and Scots languages.[1] In 2008 dotCYMRU, dotEUS, dotSCOT and dotBZH formed ECLID.

Later it was decided to allow almost any top-level domain for introduction sometime in 2013, and a list of applications for these was published in June 2012; the domain .scot was included.[2]

On 27 January 2014, Dot Scot Registry announced that it had agreed terms to operate the .scot domain name, with plans to get it up and running some time in 2014.[3]
