LANDMARK buildings, private homes and work spaces usually off limits to the public are set to open their doors to give people the chance to an exclusive look behind the scenes

A number of locations in Caithness will be taking part in the National Doors Open Days programme of events throughout on Saturday, September 15.

In the far north, the public can gain unique access to a range of buildings, including Caithness Horizons, Waterlines Visitor Centre – which tells the history of the fishing industry in Lybster – and St John the Evangelists Church in Wick, built in 1868-70.

Gordon Johnson of St Johns, said: “The Scottish Episcopal Church, around since the reformation, is surprisingly little known in Scotland, so we in Caithness need all the publicity we can get.”

“The Doors Open Day is a useful addition to our practice of opening the church for people to visit on Wednesdays during the summer months.”

The full Door Open Days programme is available to download from www.highland.gov.uk, printed copies are available from Libraries and service points.
