No other country has so many per capita and they range from the world's largest at Edinburgh to a scatter of smaller but perfectly formed events from Shetland to Wigtown and many places in between.

'There are now 39 National Trust for Scotland Members' Centres, Members' Groups and Friends' Groups throughout Scotland, one in Cambridge and one in London.
