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.

Celebrating Burns Night 2021

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.
