There’s a new adventure around every corner for all our members.

Thanks to the support of our members, we can care for our national and natural treasures and their special stories, now and for generations to come. Your generosity allows us to undertake vital work such as maintaining mountain footpaths so they remain accessible, making vital repairs to our historic castles and palaces, and restoring meadows to help birds, butterflies and bees flourish.

As a member, you’ll enjoy unlimited access to the heritage in our care – from coastlines to castles, art to architecture, wildlife to wilderness. Members can also connect with the places, properties and collections that make Scotland so special through our website and social media platforms. You can sign up for member-exclusive digital content and activities to do in your house and garden on our stay in touch page or by going to your My Trust account and choosing to receive news and updates to your inbox. Join us for the love of Scotland.

Making the most of membership

Families can make the most of a family membership with days out that offer fantastic opportunities to learn and play at the same time.

We have beautiful gardens throughout Scotland and membership makes it easy to visit again and again to see the changing colours throughout the seasons.

Our places are packed with history – from paintings and sculptures to fascinating artefacts that reveal the stories of Scotland’s past – and members go free. Our North East Castle Trail is one of many historical adventures that membership brings.

The Trust cares for many of Scotland’s wildest places and membership helps us to keep them maintained and conserved.
