Cromarty Registered Charities

The Middleton Trust was established in 2012 by the late Henry McKenzie Johnston, who provided a generous monetary gift in memory of his wife Marian Middleton from local farming family the Middletons of Rose Farm.

The purpose of the Trust is to promote the social, educational, cultural and recreational development of young people in the town of Cromarty and surrounding areas.  This legacy has allowed grants to be made to many youth-focussed projects in Cromarty over the last decade and will continue to support Cromarty's young people into the future.

The Trustees welcome new applications for the year 2025 - applications open beginning August 2024. Further details and applications forms will be available in due course. To see Projects we currently and have supported click here
