2019 is a celebration 30 Years of Doors Open Days in Scotland & 25 Years in Stirling! Doors Open Day is a celebration of Stirling’s built heritage, both old and new, and we hope you enjoy the many wonderful buildings which are opening their doors for us this year and the exciting events organised for Archaeology Month. It’s all completely for free! Look out for the balloons / blue banners on participating buildings.


Doors Open Days and Scottish Archaeology Month (both supported by Historic Environment Scotland www.historicenvironment.scot), are Stirling’s contribution to European Heritage Days, which take place throughout Europe each September. European Heritage Days have been happening annually since 1999, they were launched by the Council of Europe in 1991 and are now run by the Council of Europe and the European Commission. This year hundreds of thousands of people throughout the signatory States of the European Cultural Convention will celebrate Europe’s cultural heritage.


Doors Open Days and Archaeology Month, as part of European Heritage Days, highlight local skills and traditions, the history of an area, architecture and works of art, but the broader aim is to bring citizens together in harmony even though there are differences in cultures and languages.
