Doors Open Day 2021 features Covesea Lighthouse

Doors open online in Moray

Moray’s annual Doors Open Day is online again this year, with participating venues sharing tours from Saturday 18 September.

Six venues will have videos online offering visitors the chance to discover their buildings from the comfort of their own home.

Elgin Museum has an informative chat with architect Pinny Muir all about Elgin’s historic buildings.

There’s a video about the newly refurbished Scalan Mill and Seminary, which was built in the 1700s to train Catholic priests in the days when their religion was prohibited.

Dr Alan Miller of St Andrews University has created two virtual tours of Burghead Visitor Centre and Covesea Lighthouse, which give wonderful 360 degree views of those coastal sites.

A video about Forres Town Hall, which has recently been transferred to the ownership of Forres Area Community Trust, will be of interest to locals.

Finally, Cabrach Trust, have created a video about the beautiful Cabrach area, its heritage and their plans for the future.

Moray Council Development Officer, Alan MacBeth, who organises the event, said: “We hope everyone enjoys these videos and that they will be a lasting legacy for the venues to use in future.

“We very much look forward to welcoming folk back in person for next year’s Moray Doors Open Day. Meantime, let’s get behind and support our local venues in this virtual way from this weekend.”

Full details and the videos will be hosted on the Moray Doors Open Day website.
