Thousands of free tickets are being given away to visit some of Scotland’s best-loved historic abbeys, palaces, castles and cathedrals.
Historic Environment Scotland’s Ticket Giveaway will allow members of the public to enjoy the choice of over 30 free attractions on Saturday, November 30 and Sunday, December 1.
Registration for free tickets opens today until 5pm on November 28.
Attractions included in the campaign include Edinburgh and Stirling castles, the Border Abbeys and the Neolithic settlement of Skara Brae in Orkney.
This year’s campaign was launched at Jedburgh Abbey, just one of the sites participating in the giveaway.
The theme of this year’s photo shoot was Abbeys, inspired by the Beatles Abbey Road album, celebrating its 50th year anniversary this year.
Commenting on this year’s Ticket Giveaway Stephen Duncan, Director of Commercial and Tourism at HES, said: “I’m delighted to announce details of this year’s Ticket Giveaway, which offers free entry to a host of our winter-opening ticketed attractions over the St Andrew’s Day weekend.
“We want to encourage communities to come together and explore Scotland’s history and heritage this St Andrew’s Day. Whether it be abbeys, castles, churches or palaces, there’s something for everyone.
