Our Organisation

Working independently and collaboratively to preserve, enhance and increase understanding of Perth and Kinross’s historic environment

Since 1988 the Trust has been achieving a wide remit encompassing historic building conservation, archaeology, access to the historic environment and interpretation. Our Strategic Plan 2024-26 sets out our vision, values and priorities – with the aim of bringing economic, social and educational benefit while securing a future for Perth and Kinross’s historic environment.

Our vision is:

“A Perth and Kinross that values, embraces and enhances the economic, social and environmental benefits of its historic environment.”

Our mission is:

“Working independently and collaboratively, we will strive to preserve, enhance and increase understanding of Perth and Kinross’s historic environment.”

We realise our vision, mission and objectives through the development and delivery of projects, the administration of grants, the provision of information and advice, and a programme of outreach, learning and training activities.

Conserving our shared cultural heritage is important for many reasons: maintaining ‘sense of place’, providing a resource for learning and education for local communities, and as a driver for sustainable economic development through events and destinations for residents and visitors. We believe the rich physical heritage of Perth and Kinross, archaeological sites and historic buildings, should be enjoyed by everyone, and we aim to facilitate this through our projects and outreach events. We are committed to delivering activities and projects that increase awareness, understanding and appreciation of the historic environment. Supported by a range of funders, our outreach, learning and participation activities are often delivered as a core part of larger funded projects such as the King’s Seat Hillfort Archaeology Project. Outside of these projects, we also co-ordinate annual feature event programmes such as Doors Open Days.
