The Treshnish Isles have been in the care of The Hebridean Trust since 2000 and were transferred to the National Trust for Scotland in early July 2023.
National Trust for Scotland Chief Executive Philip Long OBE visited the islands today (Friday 7 July) said
“Building on the work of The Hebridean Trust, our experts will focus on ensuring that the Treshnish Isles are conserved and protected now and for the future, and that people can share in their nature, beauty and heritage.”
Mike Stanfield, Chair of the Hebridean Trust said
“For over twenty years, the Hebridean Trust has been proud to act as guardians for these special islands. The focus for the Hebridean Trust has now shifted towards community projects on Tiree and so we are very pleased that the National Trust for Scotland has agreed to take the Treshnish Isles into their care for the nation.”
