About National Trust for Scotland
The National Trust for Scotland (NTS)* is the country's leading conservation charity and largest membership organisation with more than 300,000 members.

The NTS is responsible for safeguarding the future of a multitude of buildings such as castles and houses, places of historic significance such as the battlefields, natural attractions including gardens, coastlines, mountains and islands and collections of art, literature and historic objects.
As well as acting as watchmen for Scotland's past, warding off damage by climate change and time, developers and pests, the NTS looks after places that communities, wildlife, flora and fauna rely on just today but for the future.
