Got to say, I’m drooling over that poster. It’s a lovely piece of work.

Doors Open Days 2013

The dates for the September Doors Open Days festival has gone live on the Doors Open website, although only Inverclyde and Renfrewshire have pubished their full programmes so far.

  • 7th & 8th September
    Ayrshire, Clackmannanshire , East Fife, East Renfrewshire, Lanarkshire
  • 14th & 15th September
    Angus, Aberdeen, Central Fife, Dundee, East Dunbartonshire, Inverclyde, Midlothian, Renfrewshire, Scottish Borders, Stirling, West Lothian
  • 21st & 22nd September
    Aberdeenshire, Glasgow, Perth and Kinross, West Fife
  • 28th & 29th September
    Edinburgh, Falkirk

Much as I’d love to spend every September weekend touring Scotland, visits will of course, be restricted to places in Lanarkshire and relatively close by. Even so, it’s going to be busy! Let’s hope for decent September weather.
