This year’s campaign was launched at Dunfermline Abbey, one of the sites participating in the giveaway as well as featuring in a new Robert the Bruce trail. For more on Robert the Bruce, see our digital guide.

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

How do I get the free tickets?

Registeration for free tickets is now open and will close at 5pm on Friday 23 November. Visitors will get the chance to claim their free tickets by simply registering online and applying for tickets to the attraction of their choice.
