Iona Circle

“Hillwalking on a gorgeous day in late spring with breathtaking views – forever etched in my memory –”

With the cost of simply maintaining Trust properties at over $75 each minute, the support of American donors is essential to the National Trust for Scotland’s success. In recognition for passion and generosity, individuals who commit to donating $1,500 annually ($500 for those under 30) are invited to join the Iona Circle, a group of likeminded philanthropists from across the United States.

Iona Circle members receive all the benefits of NTS membership, including:

  • Free admission to Trust properties
  • A subscription to our award-winning magazine, Scotland in Trust
  • The annual full-color property guide
  • Reciprocal admission to historic properties worldwide
St. Martin’s Cross, Iona Abbey

In addition, Iona Circle members receive:

  • Up to four children or grandchildren under 18 admitted free
  • Four guest passes or a complimentary Under 25 membership
  • Invitations to exclusive events, including the annual President’s Drinks Reception in Edinburgh and the Celebrating Scotland’s Treasures gala in New York
  • Exclusive discounts with corporate partners and Scottish retailers
  • Recognition in the Foundation’s biennial report
