Doors Open Day 2009
All across Scotland this weekend doors normally closed were open to the public. Lighthouses, former nuclear bunkers, castles that are private homes, masonic temples are just a few of the places that could be visited free of charge.
This is one normally closed door that I spotted as I passed the Sheriff Court - a Reliance prison van. It was full of eager public, with a British queue waiting outside, and unfortunately I didn't have time to wait.
Next year, we've decided, we must make some time for visiting the open doors. The city centre was thronged with people, Doors Open Day brochure in hand, happily intent in that special way that the Scots have when they're getting something for nothing.
