Colourful Heritage

Colourful Heritage invites you to explore the story of South Asian and Muslim heritage in Scotland.

Started in 2010, the Colourful Heritage is the first charitable initiative in Scotland aiming to preserve and celebrate the contributions of the early South Asian and Muslim communities and migrants to Scotland.

It has created the largest online repository of oral stories, established a dedicated archive and launched a unique exhibition showcasing the communities journey. Explore these amazing resources and be inspired by the positive contributions this community have made to Scotland having turned up with just a few pennies in their pocket and starting their working life as pedlars.

The Colourful Heritage hopes to record as many stories from the first generation. These heritage stories will not only be captured for future generations but will also show the enduring legacy these early migrants have left.
