The National Trust for Scotland is the conservation charity that protects and promotes Scotland's natural and cultural heritage for present and future generations to enjoy. With over 270,000 members it is the largest conservation charity in Scotland and it depends for its support on donations, legacies, grants and membership subscriptions.

Established in 1931, at the initiative of ruralScotland, the Trust acts as guardian of the nation's magnificent heritage of architectural, scenic and historic treasures. As an independent charity, not a government department, it acts on behalf of everyone to safeguard our heritage.

The Trust is unique in that its activities cover the full range of the cultural, built and natural heritage. Our challenge is to make this heritage relevant to the people of Scotland and all those who have an interest in Scotland's magnificent heritage.
