Protecting Scotland

Protecting Scotland

When you gift a membership, this support helps us to protect the places in our care and funds important conservation work, so that Scotland’s irreplaceable heritage can be enjoyed by all and protected for future generations.

Membership options

When purchasing a gift membership, you can choose whether the welcome pack is sent to you or directly to the gift recipient. When you buy a gift membership, you will also receive a confirmation email that includes a temporary membership card and car parking pass which can be used immediately.

If you wish to purchase a joint gift membership with yourself as the other named member, please choose one of our standard memberships instead of a gift membership for this option. You’ll still receive a welcome pack to present to the gift recipient.

Please note that a membership starts on the day it is purchased and will run for 365 days. We’re not able to defer the start date of memberships.
