This presentation will provide an overview of the very successful UK ATLAS Tier-2, ScotGrid, as we fast approach LHC data taking and data analysis. This will cover a variety of topics, ranging from an overview of the fabric and middleware, the site's current readiness, success during STEP, storage issues, site optimisations all the way through to disaster planning and site security. The presentation will conclude with a look into the future and how we can retain our position as one of the most successful ATLAS Tier-2 centres.
