Membership

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

As a member, you enjoy unlimited access to the heritage in our care – from coastlines to castles, art to architecture, wildlife to wilderness. Members can connect with the places, properties and collections that make Scotland so special. Thanks to the support of our members we can protect these national treasures and their special stories now and for generations to come. We do what we do for the love the Scotland.

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.

Membership benefits

Being a member has some brilliant benefits:

  • Unlimited entry to all the National Trust for Scotland’s amazing places across Scotland
  • Free or concessionary entry to places owned by National Trust organisations worldwide, including in England, Wales and Northern Ireland
  • Free parking in our car parks
  • Publications, including subscription to our member magazine and annual Guide to properties


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 pay to keep them maintained and conserved.
