Your key to the treasures of Scotland


From historic buildings and estates, to sweeping coastlines, enchanting gardens, and spectacular natural environments teeming with wildlife, the National Trust for Scotland is dedicated to caring for Scotland’s special places. In the face of threats from man-made development and frequently increasing environmental threats, our organizations in the UK and the US have been working collaboratively to adapt to new challenges while continuing to protect the places we love and increase access, enjoyment, and learning opportunities for all.

Whether you are connected to Scotland through family and ancestral ties or have simply fallen in love with this remarkable corner of the Earth, Americans’ membership plays a vital role in the National Trust for Scotland’s conservation mission. Your membership dues help the Trust to continue to care for Scotland’s precious places, each of which embodies the stories of Scottish history and people, on behalf of future generations.

Thank you for choosing to support this important work by joining or renewing your membership today.
