About Us
The Gannochy Trust is a registered charity (SC003133) based in Perth, Scotland. It was founded in 1937 by the Scottish businessman and philanthropist Arthur Kinmond Bell, known as A.K. His vision for philanthropic pursuits was ahead of its time and continues to shape The Gannochy Trust’s charitable activities to this day.

Our activities include: funding charities in Perth and Kinross and across Scotland; providing housing; managing our wider estate, from buildings to woodlands.
