A NATIONAL INVITATION FOR YOU! - AN A-MAY-ZING OFFER FROM THE TRUST

Enjoy free entry to some of Scotland’s national treasures on the last Sunday of May.  The National Trust for Scotland is extending a National Invitation on Sunday 25th of May, throwing open its doors and waiving admissions for one day only.

From woodland walks, country parks and rare flowers to turrets and towers or a delicious snack and cup of tea, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. In addition, there will be a number of exciting events and retail treats for both young and old.

Robin Pellew, Chief Executive of The National Trust for Scotland said:

“It’s a bank holiday weekend across most of Scotland and the idea is to give everyone the opportunity to share these national treasures at their leisure even if they don’t have the Monday holiday.  With so many attractions in our care - from historic homes like Culzean Castle and gardens such as Branklyn and Inverewe to the great wildernesses of Glencoe or Torridon- there is plenty of choice.

“This is the first year we have extended a national invitation and we hope people will use it as an excuse to come and enjoy what is held in trust for them all year round.  We hope this will be the first of many National Trust for Scotland days in years to come. “

The Trust’s properties, which include The Georgian House in Edinburgh and Pollok House in Glasgow attract over 1.7 million visitors each year, contributing significantly to both the Scottish and local economies.  For details of participating properties, special offers and events on the day see www.nts.org.uk or call 0131 243 9300

About The National Trust for Scotland

The National Trust for Scotland was established in 1931 to act as guardian of the nation’s magnificent heritage of architectural, scenic and historic treasures and to promote public enjoyment of them.  In its care are 127 properties covering 76,000 hectares and representing much of the best of Scotland’s heritage.

Each year the Trust welcomes over 1.7 million visitors to those properties where numbers can be counted.  It is estimated that as many again visit the countryside and open areas. The Trust, an independent charity, is the largest voluntary conservation body in Scotland.  It depends for its support on donations, legacies and the subscription of its 250,000 members.
