Event Details

Explore Scotland from your armchair.

Virtual tours, webinars, audio trails and more!

Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment.  It offers free access to over a thousand venues across the country throughout September, every year. 

Due to COVID-19, Doors Open Days 2020 will be going digital.

The aim of Doors Open Days is to ensure that Scotland’s built heritage, new and old, is made accessible to people living and visiting the country on weekends in September.

It is coordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust and is part of European Heritage Days along side Scottish Archaeology Month, coordinated by Archaeology Scotland (formerly known as the Council for Scottish Archaeology).  Both are supported by Historic Environment Scotland.

Area coordinators create and manage local programmes and work for a variety of local authorities, civic trusts and heritage organisations.

Doors Open Days 2020 venues are now appearing in the region pages! Please enjoy searching the current information on venues and activities. 

However, more is yet to come! New online guided tours, lectures, 360-degree photo tours and virtual exhibitions will be released every weekend in September. Be sure to sign up to our Doors Open Days 2020 zine to be the first to know about new releases.
