Young Advisory Panel

We’ve created Doors Open Days guides for Stirling, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow, Pitlochry and Inverness. From the best brutalist buildings to where to get a vegan hot dog in Glasgow, we’ve planned out your day for you. Pop into the Youth Hostel in these towns and cities to pick up a printed copy, or visit our website at for a digital version.  These will be available during August.

The YAP are working with Kat at Design for Zag to create and design the print guides.

The YAP are working with artist Jassy Earl to create video content to complement their guides.  Watch out for these to appear on our social media channels, and in the news section of the website during August!
