This year Doors Open Days in Perth and Kinross is even bigger than last year and is split across the last three weekends in September. Thanks to the continued generous support of the Gannochy Trust, this year’s programme has 55 interesting venues participating including guided walks that take in multiple buildings of interest. 9 venues are opening their doors for the first time:

Doors Open Days in Perth and Kinross is organised by geographical areas:

Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th: Highland and Eastern Perthshire

Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd: Strathearn and Kinross-shire

Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th: Perth City

There are only so many buildings you can physically visit in two days and with Perth and Kinross being such a large region, it is often the venues near the borders that people miss out on; now you have more time to make more visits!

Be sure to search across multiple weekends for open doors in Perth and Kinross when creating your visit itinerary.
