The third Angus Heritage Week is set to place across the county from September 5 to September 12.

The festival celebrates Angus’ unique people, places, natural environment, culture and traditions.

The week of activities will also include the annual Doors Open Days weekend, scheduled for September 6 and 7.

Councillor Alex King, Depute Provost of Angus said: “Doors Open Days is an unmissable opportunity to find out what goes on in places which are rarely open to the public.

“However, this is only one aspect of the celebrations. Angus Heritage Week is also about our county’s families, rich or poor, rural, town or coastal dwellers – the songs they sang, the stories they told, and the traditions that have been passed down the generations.”

In Brechin and Edzell, three buildings are set to take part in the Doors Open Day event.

Inglis Memorial Library, which reopened this year, is considered to be the best preserved example of a Victorian public library. It is open from 2 to 4 p.m. on both days.

Pictavia Visitor Centre, located beside Brechin Garden Castle Centre, is also part of the event, with the attraction open form 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 6, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 7.

Kinnaird Castle will also be taking part in the event.

Amongst the events featured in the Angus Heritage Week programme are details of a variety of events and projects which are taking place across Angus to commemorate the First World War Centenary, including an exhibition at the The Gateway to the Glens Museum from September 9 commemorating the centenary of World War I and the local people who fought in it.
