About the Gannochy Trust

The Gannochy Trust funds charities across Scotland and has been providing high quality rented housing on the Gannochy Estate, Perth, since the 1920s. It was established by Scottish businessman and philanthropist, Arthur Kinmond Bell in 1937, who gifted part of his estate to be held for charitable and public purposes for the benefit of the community of Perth and district.

AK Bell purchased the land in 1922 with the aim of building healthy, affordable homes for local working people to rent. The first houses were occupied in 1924 and the development was completed in 1931. The houses and estate were distinctive and well-built: AK Bell was a believer in the health-giving properties of exercise, fresh air and the outdoors, and every house had an ample garden and a plaque extolling the virtues of ventilation to the tenants.

The Trust extended the estate with new housing between the 1970s and 1990s, and again in 2000 and 2020. Today, it continues to manage its residential housing and wider estates, and also funds charities in Perth & Kinross and across Scotland with grants of around £5m per annum.  For more information on The Gannochy Trust please visit www.gannochytrust.org.uk.
