Gifts in Wills

A gift in your Will, while costing you nothing in your lifetime, allows you to make a significant and lasting contribution to protecting Scotland’s heritage for future generations.

Protect the places you love

Are you considering leaving a gift in your Will? Scotland’s heritage is so close to all our hearts; majestic landscapes, rich wildlife and the stories of people who have shaped Scotland inspire us every day. This is what the Trust and our supporters work together to preserve and protect.

Leaving a gift in your Will to the National Trust for Scotland is very easy and straightforward. An unrestricted gift is the most helpful as it allows us to use your bequest wherever need is greatest at the time. However, if you wish to make a gift towards a particular area of our work we would love to discuss your plans with you to ensure we can meet your wishes.

Legacies support all areas of the Trust’s work. Your gift could help us care for over 100 special places, ranging from castles to cottages, and tenements to estates, or it could help us to manage and protect spectacular landscapes and their inhabitants, including 400 islands, 46 Munros and over a million seabirds.
