Four different search options are available.

Using the Search Places and Search Saints search boxes found at the top of every page, you may perform a simple keyword search of the place and saint data, respectively. This functionality is probably sufficient for most users. Alternatively, you may also search for place-names.

You may also browse alphabetic lists of places and saints.

The Advanced Search form provides many more options for refining your query, including criteria relating to saints, personal names, elements and language.

Finally, the Map Search option presents a map of Scotland which may be explored.
