At number 55 on our 100 Ways list we're continuing our £1 offer for Young Scots.

Scottish actor Cherry Campbell was at the National Trust for Scotland’s Pollok House today (Monday 1 April) to launch a campaign to support young Scots to visit and get inspired by  the country’s unique heritage, just in time for the Easter school break.

For just £1, holders of a Young Scot card will be granted access to National Trust for Scotland, Historic Environment Scotland and Historic Houses Scotland properties across the country.

Now in its second year, the £1 offer means that anyone aged 11–25 with a Young Scot card will be able to visit a choice of 600 properties that showcase Scotland’s built and cultural history including Culzean Castle, Stirling Castle and Abbotsford House.

Cherry stands inside Pollok House, beside a floor-length red curtain, holding a giant pound coin.

Cherry Campbell, star of Katie MoragClique and The Loch as well as being a Young Scot Awards finalist, helped launch the campaign. She said:

‘I absolutely love exploring Scotland’s historic buildings. Some of my favourites are Robert Burns Birthplace Museum and Stirling Castle, and I like to go back time and time again because you always discover something new. This £1 offer is a fantastic opportunity for young Scots to discover some of the country’s most historical places and spaces and it’s a great way to do something different with friends over the spring and summer months.’

Find out more about the £1 entry offer and how young people can get their Young Scot card at young.scot. A full list of properties and locations can be found at participating organisations’ websites: nts.org.ukhistoricenvironment.scot and historichouses.org.
