The St Andrew's Ticket Giveaway

Stephen Duncan, director of commercial and Tourism at HES, said: “Exploring our sites is a great way to learn more about Scotland’s fascinating past and we want to encourage communities to take a step back in time and learn more about the significant historic stories in their local area.

“By participating in the St Andrew’s Ticket Giveaway, visitors will have the opportunity to access our iconic castles, abbeys and palaces for free over the weekend, with something for everyone.

“If you’ve never visited your local historic site, then this is the perfect opportunity as it gives visitors the unique chance to get a taste of what’s available in their area for free
