The late Margaret MacLean, Lady Skiffington died on 6th January 2004. She was from 1970 the owner of Innergellie, a Grade A mansion near Kilrenny. The house and its contents were subsequently sold. Having become almost blind in her later years, she left her entire estate to benefit the blind in East Fife, and expressed a wish that Innergellie South Wood should be made available for public use.
The Trust was constituted by Trust Deed dated 31st March 2004.
The Trust has gradually built up its assistance to blind and visually impaired persons in East Fife. Aids and equipment grants are generally obtained following assessment and a recommendation from SeeScape. Financial assistance with volunteer transport is given through the WRVS.
