The Scottish Catholic Archives (SCA) at Columba House in Edinburgh has been closed without warning amidst claims of "mis-management and indifference." Whatever the causes, the primary problem was that there was no one left to take care of the place. The archives were unmanned.
The Scottish Catholic Archives contain more than a million documents dating back 800 years, including letters from Mary Queen of Scots and papers relating to Oscar Wilde.
