How We Started

The Boyndie Trust was established in 1999 to serve the community of Boyndie and other communities along the Banffshire coast and inland to Turriff and Fyvie.

What We Do

The Boyndie Trust vision is to ensure the broad-based regeneration of the area, including the employability and well-being of people who are disadvantaged in the labour market. The Trust owns and has converted a beautiful red-brick Victorian school building into a visitor centre attracting 35,000 visitors a year. The centre boasts a four star restaurant, gift shop, plant nursery, textiles workshop, joinery business and office space. Together these provide training opportunities for 70 people, many who have special needs, and paid employment for a further 30 people. Products from the textile and joinery workshops and plants from the nursery are sold at the centre and under contract to local organisations.
