Sponsored: A unique opportunity to visit historic buildings and venues across Angus for 2 days

House of Dun
House of Dun

Buildings across Angus will be welcoming the public on 8 and 9 September when they take part in this year’s Doors Open Days.

Doors Open Days are held throughout Scotland and provide free access to buildings which normally charge an entrance free, are not usually open to the public or are private dwelling places. Co-ordinated by the Scottish Civic Trust, Doors Open Days offer a rare chance to peek inside and find out what goes on behind closed doors!

St Vigeans Museum

There are over 20buildings taking part in Doors Open Days across Angus. Along with favourites such as Barry Mill in Carnoustie, Mortuary Chapel in Arbroath and House of Dun in Montrose, there are a number of new venues on the programme for 2018.

Immerse yourself in Pictish history at St Vigeans Museum in Arbroath. This museum houses one of the most important collections of Pictish Christian stones and is normally open by appointment only.

Enjoy a rare experience to view the Glamis Manse stone, an early Pictish cross slab standing at almost nine foot high, set inside a private garden.

Humpty House in Kirriemuir will also open its doors to visitors. The contemporary family home overlooks Lintrathen Loch and was the winner of Dundee Institute of Architect’s Supreme Award 2017. The building was designed by Ben Scrimgeour of The Building Workshop.

Airlie Monument

Many of the venues included in the Doors Open Days programme are not often open to the public – Arbroath Fire Station, the Royal Observer Corps Post Museum and Airlie Monument to name a few. Don’t miss the opportunity to see inside these fascinating venues and learn about the rich heritage of Angus.

To find out more about Doors Open Days, visit or pick up a copy of the programme at ACCESS offices, tourist attractions across Angus, Dundee, Perthshire, Aberdeenshire and Fife as well as ANGUSalive leisure centres, libraries and museums.
