Your key to the treasures of Scotland—and beyond.


Over the past month, National Trust for Scotland staff in the UK and the US have been working collaboratively to adapt to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Though Trust properties are temporarily closed to the public, we continue to preserve our historic buildings, protect wildlife, clean coastlines, and look after landscapes even in these most difficult of circumstances.

Americans can play a vital role in this uncertain time. Your membership helps the Trust to care for Scotland’s precious places, each of which embodies the stories of Scottish history and people, on behalf of future generations.

As a gesture of our gratitude and appreciation for our member community during this difficult time, we are offering an extended 15-month membership to all new, renewing, and gift memberships purchased between now and June 30th. With this extension, you will receive one additional issue of the NTS member magazine.

It is our hope that our members will find comfort and feel closer to Scotland through the photographs and stories that the NTS member’s magazine delivers to us from afar. With your support, the Trust will be able to welcome us back to Scotland when better days return.
