The Heraldry Society of Scotland was founded in 1977 with the objective of promoting the study of heraldry and encouraging its correct use in Scotland and overseas.

The Society encourages people to join whether they have their own Arms, intend to procure Arms, or have a general interest in Scottish Heraldry.

The Heraldry Society publishes a quarterly quality A4 sized colour newsletter entitled Tak Tent, and an annual booklet (100pp) of essays entitled The Double Tressure.
