The Trust was established in 1991 when it replaced an earlier Trust established in 1966. Its mission is to provide a museum of standing which preserves and displays the collected items entrusted to its care. It is responsible for operating and maintaining the Clan Macpherson Museum. Income and capital from the Trust can be used for anything from repairing the roof to acquiring artefacts, from cutting the grass to paying the electricity bills.
This Fund was set up in 2004 in memory of the late Sheila Macpherson, the wife of the Clan Chief. Income from the fund is used to cover curatorial costs. This enables us to open seven days a week from April to October. In addition to Curatorial cover, it allows for the upgrading of exhibitions, scholarly research in relation to the Clan Macpherson and supporting student internship using the resources of the Museum.
