The story of Scotland is told through its places, from the wild peaks of Torridon to Edinburgh’s elegant Charlotte Square. 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.
But right now, many of the places we love are at risk – from the elements, from development, and from a devastating global coronavirus pandemic.
Save Our Scotland
The nation’s most loved places are at risk. Please help us Save Our Scotland today.
The coronavirus pandemic has had a profound impact on the National Trust for Scotland’s work. Closure of our historic sites was vital to the safety of members, visitors, and staff, but the financial cost has been devastating. This year, the Trust is expected to lose over $35 million in earned income. Admission fees, group tours, vacation rentals, special events, and cafe and shop sales all raise vital funds that go toward protecting Scotland’s cultural heritage: both natural and architectural. Their loss has left us facing a true financial crisis.
The future of everything we do is under threat. We’re asking for the support of our members, and all Americans who love Scotland, to help survive this crisis.
As NTSUSA marks its 20th anniversary this year, and the National Trust for Scotland approaches its 90th, we are in a unique position as the Trust’s closest supporters to provide critical help. Click here to learn more about how your donation can help.
