Thousands of free tickets available for top heritage attractions across the country
Historic Environment Scotland (HES) is offering people across Scotland a golden ticket – the chance to visit some of its top visitor attractions for free.
On Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November, Ticket Giveaway weekend will allow people of all ages and interests to see inside the historic buildings that have helped to shape Scotland’s culture and identity over the centuries.
From the royal renaissance splendour of Stirling Castle with its beautifully refurbished palace and Great Hall, to the cosy tradition of a thatched Blackhouse in the Western Isles which once sheltered a family and animals under the same roof, HES helps bring Scotland’s stories back to life for millions of people every year. Now, thousands of free tickets have been released, and visitors have from 11am on Tuesday 1st November until 5pm on Friday 25th November to register online for the chance to visit castles, cathedrals and even a corn mill.
There is no limit on the number of participating attractions visitors can apply for, but early online registration is encouraged to avoid disappointment. Visitors can apply for a maximum of two adult and three family tickets to each historic property of their choosing. Family tickets admit up to two adults and three children. Tickets can be applied for through a dedicated website, www.ticketgiveaway.co.uk
