Scottish Civic Trust

The Scottish Civic Trust was set up in 1967 to help people connect to their built heritage and take a leading role in guiding its development. In its infancy, it successfully campaigned for the restoration of Edinburgh’s New Town, was instrumental in the revitalisation of New Lanark and can also claim credit for bringing Doors Open Days to the United Kingdom. Our mission is to celebrate Scotland’s built environment, take action for its improvement and empower its communities.
