2018 Doors Open Days programme revealed

The Scottish Civic Trust have unveiled their 2018 Doors Open Day programme, ushering in the annual celebration of heritage and the built environment.

Throughout September hundreds of sites will open up to visitors free of charge including a sandstone mortuary chapel in Angus, a Rabbie Burns Museum within Greenock Custom House and St Bride’s Church in East Kilbride.

The A-listed Mortuary Chapel will open its doors on the weekend of the 8th and 9th of September when visitors will be able to view at first hand the elaborate red sandstone chapel built by Patrick Allan-Fraser of Hospitalfield in memory of his wife Elizabeth in 1873.

On the same weekend the Rabbie Burns Museum, reputedly the oldest Burns Club in the world, will open up as part of the recently renovated Greenock Custom House. Tours of the site are also available although advance booking is required.

Also participating is St Bride’s Church, East Kilbride, the post war Gillespie Kidd and Coia masterpiece , which will be hosting guided tours at 13:00 and 14:30 on the 29th of September on a strictly first come, first served basis.
