Doors Open Day returns

THE POPULAR ‘Doors Open’ event returns this year, allowing access to buildings not normally open to the public.

Doors Open Day allows members of the public the opportunity, free of charge, to take a look at some of the cultural and historical buildings in the county.

Locally, the restored schoolhouse at Logie has been newly added to the list.

This year sees the opening of 15 buildings, including favourites Hospitalfield House, Kinnaird Castle and the Arbroath Royal Observer Corps Monitoring Post.
