Patrons’ Club

Launched in 2003, the Patrons’ Club is an international collective of individuals who have a deep passion for Scotland and the work of the National Trust for Scotland. Patrons are currently from across the UK, the USA and Canada; we welcome all who have a love for Scotland.

The vital support provided by our Patrons’ Club members ensures that we can continue to protect Scotland’s special places and spaces, to be enjoyed by everyone now and for generations to come.

The Patron of the National Trust for Scotland is HRH The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay.
