Doors Open Day Saturday 21st September 2013

Saturday, 21st September 2013 (all day)

Location: Aberdeenshire

This event is in the past.

This year Doors Open Day, on Saturday 21st September, covers quite a lot of Aberdeenshire (and of course many other places in Scotland). Attached is the brochure, and we hope you will find interesting places to visit and recommend.

The Preservation and Heritage Society has an excellent tradition of helping with Doors Open Day and will this year be at:

1 High Shore, Banff (open from 10.00am - 4.00pm)

This wonderful house is what they called a ‘lodging’ in the 17C, of the generation before the Georgians, with hints of a castle. Almost every room has unusual little corners opening off, and there is the house’s own private lookout tower on the corner. 
Building Date: 1675
The Banff Preservation Society, as it then was, restored this house, and is delighted to see it so well looked after since. Its neighbours on High Shore are also very fine old houses and include the Silversmiths house and the Market Arms Inn, the oldest continuously occupied building in Banff.

Macduff War Memorial, Canker's Knowe, Macduff (open from 10.00am - 12 noon and 2.30pm - 4.00pm)

This imposing structure was constructed to John Fowlie’s design by two experienced masons, Alexander Brown and Magnus Johnstone, between April 1921 and October 1922. The octagonal tower of rusticated and rock faced ashlar, all of Kemnay granite, is 70 feet high with a base diameter of 18 feet. There are wonderful views.
Building Date: 1921-22.

Of course, there are many more fantastic historical properties in Aberdeenshire to see.

For the full list please see the attached brochure or visit the Doors Open Day website
