Canmore is an online database maintained by the Historic Environment Scotland since 2015, having previously been maintained by Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland. The Canmore database is a part of the National Monuments Record of Scotland (or NMRS) and contains information on over 320,000 archaeological sites, monuments, and buildings in Scotland, with some 1.3 million catalogue entries.[1][2] It also includes marine monuments and designated official wreck sites (those which fall under the Protection of Wrecks Act), such as the wreck of HMS Pheasant.[3][4]
