Run by members, for members
National Trust for Scotland Members' Centres and Friends' Groups are local groups of like-minded people who come together to find out more about the Trust, with a varied programme of talks, outings, holidays and social events. Members’ Centres and Groups cover a geographical region, whereas Friends’ Groups are generally focused at one property.
There are 38 Members' Centres and Friends' Groups: 36 throughout Scotland, 1 in Cambridge and 1 in London, and some have been supporting the Trust for more than 40 years. They provide a valuable financial and practical contribution, through fundraising, recruitment, property guiding and conservation at a local level.
Most groups are individually registered charities, raising large sums of money to support the Trust. Properties rely on this support to help conserve their heritage and enhance the visitor experience for present and future generations.
For a taste of what each group has to offer and how to join them, click on the flags on the map below, or view the Members' Centre and Friends' Group Programme for the Spring/Summer 2016 season using the link in the left-hand 'Downloads' menu.
