The MacRobert Trust
01339 881444
The MacRobert Trust is the proud keeper of an historic legacy left by their founder and benefactor Lady Rachel MacRobert that is focussed on her interests, those of her husband, Sir Alexander and in memory of the tragic loss of their 3 sons, the youngest losing their lives within 5 weeks of each other during WW2, serving as pilots in the Royal Air Force. The Trust is centred on an Aberdeenshire estate that not only has farms and forestry but commercial and residential property as well as a 4 Star Country House Hotel – Douneside House, Lady MacRobert’s former home and gardens; the Trust’s profits each year are granted to charities across the UK reflecting those family interests in the military, education, Science and engineering, agriculture & horticulture and youth, as well as the estate’s local area and community. So many estates strive to be exemplary and live up to the SLE’s Landowner’s charter and the MacRobert Trust endeavours to be amongst that leading group and that is why it is proud to sponsor the HiH awards in general and, noting the fundamental importance of local community relationships, the particular “working with communities” award.
