Why the National Trust for Scotland?

For 90 years the Trust has pioneered conservation of, and public access to, some of the most magnificent buildings, collections and landscapes in the country.

We care for ancient houses, battlefields, castles, gardens, mills, coastlines, islands, mountain ranges and all of the communities, plants and species which depend upon them.

Together, we uncover and tell the stories of Scotland’s rich heritage to visitors from home and afar, preserving them for generations now and in the future, with a focus on conservation, engagement and sustainability. With big plans as we work towards our 100th anniversary in 2031, our vision is simple and profound: Nature, Beauty and Heritage for Everyone.
