We are working in partnership with Friends of the Mansion to set up the ‘Gracemount Mansion Development Trust’ (GMDT) to care for and manage Gracemount Mansion and the surrounding land for the local community. To achieve this, GMDT will request transfer of ownership of the site from City of Edinburgh Council. A small grant from the Scottish Land Fund is helping this project to get started.
