National Trust for Scotland
Nature, Beauty and Heritage for Everyone | National Trust for Scotland (nts.org.uk). The National Trust for Scotland is the charity that cares for, shares and speaks up for Scotland’s magnificent heritage. We’re Scotland’s largest membership organisation and we’re independent of government.
Since 1931, we’ve pioneered public access to and shared ownership of some of the most magnificent buildings, collections and landscapes in Scotland. We care for ancient houses, battlefields, castles, mills, gardens, coastlines, islands, mountain ranges and the plants and animals which depend upon them.
Together, the places and objects in our care tell the stories of Scotland and the Scots: how our people travelled and interacted with the wider world, taking with them their energy and values and returning with new ideas and treasures. Without our involvement, many of these places and things would have been lost forever to the passage of time, development and the elements.
Scotland is exceptional in its nature, beauty and heritage, and everyone should have access to this.
NHSCOT – New Hampshire Highland Games & Festival
Today NHSCOT® is a Federally Registered Trademark hosting not only the NH Highland Games & Festival, but an annual Heritage Lecture Series, a lively music event known as Beltane and a family friendly Scottish New Year celebration called Hogmanay. Additionally, competitions, guided trips to Scotland, Try It classes and workshops are scheduled throughout the year to further NHSCOT’s mission, vision and values. Dedicated to the furtherance of Scottish culture and traditions, the NHSCOT Fund awards grants and scholarships to deserving individuals and organizations with aligned purpose. The NHSCOT FUND’s merger with the Scottish Scholarship Fund of New Hampshire in 2017 now allows more funds to be distributed on a quarterly basis.
In 2018, NHSCOT realized a dream when it founded the Pipes & Drums of NHSCOT. Incredible band leadership has already double the size of the band. Free weekly lessons are offered to newcomers wishing to learn how to play the bagpipes, snare, bass or tenor drums. An afterschool program in the Kearsarge school district will help grow the next generation of band members. As of 2020, we are excited to offer the New Hampshire Tartan. It was originally developed for the 20th anniversary of the NH Highland Games & Festival and now sales of yardage and products though NHSCOT will contribute to our NHSCOT FUND as well as the sustainability of NHSCOT.
