The annual opportunity for the curious to experience what lies behind the doors of some of the most interesting buildings across Perth and Kinross was available at the weekend.
A total of 40 buildings were on offer for Doors Open Days this year, with many usually hidden from public gaze.
Among them were five new buildings, including Perth Crematorium, which opened its doors for tours of the building to dispel the myths and ‘tall stories’ that are told about crematoria.
Durn, one of the elegant late 19th century villas that line the eastern bank of the Tay also opened for the first time.
Now the headquarters of land and estate agents Bell Ingram, the house has been used as a family home for the Pullars and at one time housed the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve.
The public also took the opportunity to visit HMP Castle Huntly, a 600-year-old castle that was once the seat of the Bowes-Lyons, and quirky structures in every corner of the district.
At Quarto Press in Coupar Angus the public had a chance to try their hand at hand printing and help proprietor John Easson celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Cropper treadle press.
Churches, cathedrals and burial grounds invited people to come and learn about some of their fascinating secrets.
Music, poetry and activities for children were also laid on at many buildings taking part in the local event which was organised by Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust and funded by the Gannochy Trust.
