Traquair House Charitable Trust looks after Traquair, Scotland's Oldest Inhabited House which is open to the public for seven months of the year. The house spans over 900 years of Scottish history with strong links to Mary Queen of Scots, the Jacobite Uprisings and its inhabitants were staunch Catholics.
The trust preserves the house for the public benefit, encourages public access; study and appreciation of Traquair and promotes events and activities to advance education and social welfare.
The Battle of Falkirk Muir was the largest of all the battles fought during the four Jacobite uprisings yet there is little public knowledge or recognition for this historic event. The main aim of the Trust is to drive this awareness.
