Join Shambellie House Trust

We continue to work towards securing Shambellie House for the community and to turn it into a creative hub for arts, crafts and heritage.    You can become a member so that together we can start on an amazing journey and make a real difference.

The Trust has now been established as a Community Benefit Society.  It is a registered charity and is now recruiting members.  

All members must be shareholders.  Shares are priced at £1.00 and the minimum holding is 10 shares. At this stage we are limiting 10 shares per member.  Those who were members when Shambellie House was originally set up as a Company Limited by Guarantee will be offered the opportunity of becoming members of the new Shambellie House Trust.  

We have now scaled back the project to take account of the changes caused by the Covid19 pandemic to a first phase of carrying out the minimum necessary works to part of the House and enable its transfer from the Scottish Government to Shambellie House Trust.    

The Objects of the Society are: -

(a) To arrange for the buildings and grounds to be used for the advancement of arts, heritage and culture.   To provide facilities for the arts and provide heritage benefit to the community by preserving the listed building of Shambellie House (including any outbuildings or associated buildings and grounds).

(b) To arrange for the buildings and grounds to be used for the advancement of education, in particular arts, culture and the environment.
