St Kilda

The story of Scotland is told through its places, from the remote island of St Kilda to Edinburgh’s elegant Charlotte Square. These places connect us to the past and provide inspiration for our future. And your support to protect them is now more important than ever. Americans can play a critical role to ensure the future of Scotland’s past during this uncertain time.

Events & Administrative Update around COVID-19

After careful consideration, The National Trust for Scotland Foundation USA has made the difficult decision to postpone two upcoming special eventsour April fundraising gala, A Celebration of Scotland’s Treasures, and our May tour of Scotland’s glorious west coast gardens – due to uncertainties stemming from the global COVID-19 pandemic.

The true joy of our work is connecting Americans with Scotland’s extraordinary natural beauty and cultural heritage, and today the distance between our two countries seems vast. However, the health and safety of our donors and colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic are of utmost concern at this time.

Happily, we are able to reschedule these two programs:

  • The 2020 A Celebration of Scotland’s Treasures gala will be rescheduled for September 29, 2020
  • Our garden tour will be rescheduled to May 10-14, 2021, in order to allow us to see the west coast’s azaleas and rhododendrons at peak bloom. In addition, we will be offering a second garden tour, to Perthshire and Fife, in June 2021. Full information about both tours will be available later this spring.

Finally, please note that our office will be closed to the public through at least the end of May. We ask for your patience and understanding as we process gifts and memberships remotely. Please do not hesitate to contact executive director, Kirstin Bridier, at kbridier@ntsusa.org at any time if we can be of assistance. If you would like to communicate by phone please call 617-227-7500 and leave a voicemail. We will return your call as soon as possible.
