The National Trust for Scotland is the Scottish equivalent of the English National Trust. Like the National trust, the NTS is a heritage conservation charity responsile for preserving properties of historical and architectural importance for future generations. The range of properties under the care of the NTS is quite diverse, ranging from cottages to castle,,industrial heritage sites such as Lanark Mills, and birthplaces of famous Scots like Robbie Burns.

The Trust looks after over 200,000 acres of countryside, among including mountains and moorlands, farmland, foresst, coastlines, waterfalls, and islands. As a member you gain free entry into more than 100 Scottish properties and receive a guidebook with details of all the properties. In addition, the NTS has recipriocal agreements with other heritage organisations in Britain, meaning that you can get free entry to National Trust properties in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The NTS also has similar arrangements with heritage organisations around the world, allowing you to gain free or discounted entry to famous sites while on holiday abroad.
