The story of Scotland is told through its places, from the sweeping vistas of the Highlands to the humble cottage where Robert Burns was born. These places connect us to the past and provide inspiration for our future.
At NTSUSA, we are privileged to help the National Trust for Scotland care for many of Scotland’s most incredible places – the majestic landscapes, glorious gardens, and architectural treasures that tell the story of the natural forces and people who shaped this spectacular corner of our world.
Help Save the Honresfield Library and Bring Burns Home
Some of Robert Burns’s earliest-known works are among the treasures held in the Honresfield Library, a “lost” private collection that has recently come up for auction at Sotheby’s. Now the National Trust for Scotland is joining forces with cultural organizations across the United Kingdom in a bid to save this precious piece of literary history for future generations.

Clan Partners are American clan organizations who are taking a leadership role in protecting our Scottish heritage by joining NTSUSA. Their support is making an impact at all corners of Scotland, from the sandy coast of Shetland in the north to the rolling hills of the Borders in the south.

The Macallan is one of the world’s most awarded and admired single malts. This peerless reputation has been built by the commitment of The Masters of Spirit and Wood, the craftsmen at the heart of The Macallan since it was legally licensed in 1824. Their unfaltering obsession with selecting exceptional oak casks and distilling sublime spirits brings an unsurpassed, timeless quality to The Macallan.
