Aberdeenshire (14th - 15th September)
I have been employed by Aberdeenshire council for approximately 20 years in the role of planner within the Environment Planning Team. My remit is specifically built and cultural heritage and as such one of my roles is to coordinate Doors Open Days within Aberdeenshire, and I have been doing so on and off for about 15 years.
My favourite memory from Doors Open Days so far is dressing up in a nuclear radiation protective suit and descending down a ladder into the Council's nuclear bunker, for publicity!
Special in our Doors Open Days programme this year is the Todhead Lighthouse, from here you can spot dolphins if you're lucky!
You can see the full programme of events, activities and buildings that are opening their doors in Aberdeenshire here.
