Abbot House SCIO became a registered charity SC047777 in 2017, with a Board of Trustees set up to fulfil the key objective of restoring and maintaining the building to allow it to be used for public use, whilst promoting local arts, crafts and heritage skills.
Our Trustees are:
LYNN GEMMELL (MA Hons, CA, CTA), Director of GM VAT Solutions.
CRAIG SMITH (BA, LL.B), Associate Director of Young & Partners Business Law Ltd.
NAOMI HANN (MA History and Archaeology), studying towards a Postgraduate in Architectural History and Theory MSc.
Abbot House SCIO is a charity but must be self-sustaining and have a strong business model for it to remain open. Abbot House Trading Limited was established in 2020 to generate income across the house, with the aim of redirecting any remaining operational profit back into the charity to maintain the building.
The Abbot House SCIO Board of Trustees and Abbot House Trading Limited Directors all live in Dunfermline and its surrounding areas. They are committed to the success of Abbot House and are passionate about preserving Abbot House for future use.
