Scottish Historic Buildings Trust is a charity that secures the future of under-used historic buildings across Scotland by expertly restoring them for the nation and finding new uses that can regenerate local communities and the historic environment. 

SHBT is not core funded but secures its resources through grants and philanthropic gifts.  We have restored over 20 buildngs to commuity use in 30 years.
