The Best on the Web - The Union

SCOTTISH PARLIAMENT http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/welcoming_you/ff2.htm#west
The humble beginnings of the Scottish parliament can be traced back to the 12th century and the official website of the new Scottish Parliament offers a good chronicle. You can discover how the Treaty of the Union in 1707 changed Scotlandís politics and how the Scots' role in the new British Parliament at Westminster developed.

NATIONAL ARCHIVES OF SCOTLAND
http://www.nas.gov.uk/the_collections.htm
The National Archives of Scotland holds the historical public and legal records of Scotland which deserve permanent preservation, including the acts of Parliament, maps, plans, church records and private archives. A wealth of information for the budding historian - including the Jacobites and the events surrounding the union.
