The projects that we undertake to rescue significant historic buildings typically fall into two categories: Those projects that we undertake directly ourselves and those that we work with others to deliver.

Our Projects

SHBT usually takes ownership or a long lease of a historic building to secure its re-development and sustainable future, taking the project from inception to completion and retaining the building to ensure that it is properly cared for and managed in the long term.

We have rescued over 30 significant historic buildings in Scotland. 

You can find details of our current and past projects over the following pages. 


Working in Partnership with others

SHBT provides project facilitation skills to other trusts, community groups or building owners to help them develop their own historic building projects in the following ways:

  • Advice and General Support
  • Options Appraisals/Feasibility Studies – finding the appropriate new use for a building
  • Fundraising – helping to prepare funding applications to major grant funders
  • Project Management – helping through the lifetime of a project or just a part of it.
