Tap the Past

We’re delighted to have partnered with Bank of Scotland and VISA to bring contactless to the Trust.

We’ve created beautiful replicas of a couple of the Trust’s most famous artefacts to bring contactless to two of our historic locations. The replicas include a 200-year-old bust of Robert Burns at Robert Burns Birthplace Museum in Ayrshire, and a historical painting of Colonel William Gordon at Fyvie Castle in Aberdeenshire. Watch the video to see more about how we created them.

Visitors can now simply tap their card on the artworks to make a £2 donation to the Trust and help preserve Scottish heritage for generations to come.

Please do touch this art!
