The Middleton Trust

was established in 2012 by a generous gift from Henry McKenzie Johnston, in memory of his wife, Marian Middleton and  all the Middletons of Rosefarm who loved Cromarty and its people.

The Trust fund is:

  • for the benefit of young people (roughly up to the age of 24 or 25) in and around Cromarty (within the boundary of the Cromarty & District Community Council area)
  • to be used for grants to organisations and not to be paid directly to individuals and
  • to be used to promote the social, educational, cultural and recreational development of these young people

The Middleton Trust a Registered Charity, SCO43079 and registered for Gift Aid. A Gift Aid form can be found here


The Trustees thank all organisations who applied for Middelton Trust awards for the year 2020-21. Funding was disbursed at the AGM on 10th October 2019 to organisations supporting young people in Cromarty & District.
