Each summer NTSUSA hosts an intern from the Saltire Foundation, the charitable arm through which Entrepreneurial Scotland raises funds to develop the next generation of entrepreneurial leaders.
Most recently, Lauren Bryce joined us in 2016 for a summer marketing communications internship. She is currently studying for a BA Honours in Marketing at the University of Strathclyde. Lauren’s future ambition is to set up a social enterprise and the experience of a Saltire internship at the NTSUSA combined with her passion and studies in Marketing will act as a strong foundation for making this dream a reality.
We are honored to work with UK based photographer David Ross as the official photographer of the NTSUSA. David manages Britain Express, a go-to website for UK history and travel recommendations. In his travels, he has photographed across Scotland including dozens of NTS properties.
