ChargePlace Scotland is a national network of EV charge points, operated by Charge Your Car on behalf of the Scottish Government.
The network requires users to first sign up with an account, before they can then access ChargePlace Scotland charge points via either RFID card or smartphone app. All charge points are free to access though once the account has been set up, including rapid chargers and those units on key tourist routes.
