ABOUT Hostelling Scotland:

Hostelling Scotland, which launched in 1931, is a self-funding charity with a network of over 30 youth hostels in stunning locations around Scotland. We offer great value, flexible accommodation, expert local knowledge and a warm welcome for anyone wishing to experience the real Scotland.

ABOUT Doors Open Days:

Doors Open Days gives natives, new arrivals, and visitors free access to over 1,000 venues and events, many of which are not usually accessible to the public, across Scotland every September.  We believe that the more that people are involved with Scottish culture and heritage, the richer it gets. This year, we are celebrating 30 years of Doors Open Days with an incredible programme of events that will be announced on the Doors Open Days website in July.  Doors Open Days is coordinated nationally by the Scottish Civic Trust.
