Doors open day Brechin

Angus Council has this year continued its involvement in Doors Open Day, which is held throughout Scotland on varying weekends throughout September. This is Scotland’s contribution to “European Heritage Days” and sees the simultaneous opening of thousands of buildings across Europe.

Doors Open Day allows members of the public the opportunity to see inside some buildings that are not normally accessible. It gives people the opportunity, free of charge, to take a look at some of the cultural and historical buildings that Angus is lucky enough to be home to.

This year in Brechin there is the opportunity to visit the following buildings: Kinnaird Castle - two guided pre-booked tours at 3pm and 4.15 pm (max no. 25 in each group) – no general entry on Sunday, September 9; Pictavia on Saturday, September 8 between 9am – 5pm and between 10am – 5pm on Sunday, September 9; Town House Museum on Saturday, September 8 between 10am – 5pm; and Merchant’s House on Saturday, September - booked tours only – details to be confirmed. Contact or telelephone 01307 473265 to book.

In addition Angus Council is also hosting a Heritage Week which will run from 7 to 14 September and is being run in association with Doors Open Days. Full details of what is on through Angus Heritage Week can be found at
