Information about The Strathmartine Trust

The Strathmartine Trust FlatThe Strathmartine Trust was established by the late Dr Ronald Cant to encourage and support the study of all periods of Scottish History, continuing the work which he started in his lifetime.

The Strathmartine Centre is open for use by those who have registered and who pay a small annual fee, currently £40 per annum.

Registered users have access to the Centre Library and kitchen facilities, and receive invitations to our monthly seminars, when current research projects are presented in an informal setting.

The Centre also has a fully equipped kitchen and Common Room, where you can catch up with other Centre members over a tea or coffee. Just outside the kitchen, the Centre also has a small walled garden complete with patio and a rhubarb patch!

One room is currently home to the 'Scotland and the Wider World Project', under the auspices of the Institute of Scottish Historical Research at the University of St Andrews. This project seeks to establish the full extent of Scotland's links with the 'Wider World', particularly in the Early Modern Period and currently involvesĀ several PhD students. A related project on 'Scotland and the Flemish People' has recently been initiated by the Institute. Further details can be found here:

The Trust offers a small range of publications for sale, including the most recent edition of Ronald Cant's The University of St Andrews: A Short History, and other works authored by researchers connected to the Trust. For more information on these works, please see the 'Library' page.
