( Charity Number SC 011062 )

The Perth & Kinross Members' Group has about 200 members. Its purpose is to promote a fuller understanding of the Trust through a programme of talks, visits, events and the publication of a twice-yearly newsletter.

The Group offers financial and practical help to the Trust whenever possible; raising funds for this with a number of events during the year.

During the autumn and winter months illustrated talks are held in the William Soutar Theatre of the A.K. Bell Library, 2 - 8 York Place, Perth at 19:30. The entrance fee is £5 for members of Perth and Kinross Members' Group and £6 for non-members. All are welcome to come to our talks.

In summer and early autumn visits are arranged to Trust properties and other places of interest.

Membership, which currently costs £6.50 per annum, is open to any member of the National Trust for Scotland or the National Trust for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

If you would like to join the Group or to request further information about the Programme please telephone:
Mary Willington, Chairperson: Tel. 01738 813787.
