The National Trust for Scotland - A Place to Remember

Many people from Scotland and beyond have fond memories of happy times visiting properties cared for by the National Trust for Scotland. Many a walker has marvelled at the beauty of the views from Torridon or Kintail and numerous families have enjoyed the grandeur of a day out at Culzean, Crathes or Kellie.

However we rely on legacy gifts to help us care for these places, and the stories of Scotland that they tell. Every year legacy income supports around a quarter of our vital conservation projects that otherwise could not happen.

By remembering the Trust with a gift in your will you can contribute to future projects as varied as saving and promoting wildlife, protecting places of natural beauty, or teaching the next generation about the heritage which is all around them. Find out what previous gifts have accomplished here 

Regardless of size, each gift makes a real and lasting difference. We're proud to say that every gift that we receive is spent only on maintaining and restoring our properties, never on administration.

By leaving a legacy to The National Trust for Scotland you will help us continue our vital conservation work for generations to come.

Remember a Charity
The National Trust for Scotland is now proud to announce that from 2014 we will be joining the Remember a Charity Consortium to help raise awareness of the amazing impact made by gifts in Wills.

Remember A Charity was formed in 2000 and now has over 140 of the UK's favourite charities, who work together to encourage more people to consider leaving a charitable gift in their Will, once they've looked after their family and friends. Together, we aim to do what no single charity can do alone, making legacy giving a social norm.
