Bumping this one up again because this weekend sees DoD in a few parts of Scotland and there are more again next weekend. This is always a good chance to visit buildings which aren't always open to the public.

This weekend the Hector MacDonald memorial is open in Dingwall, The Macduff war memorial tower is open on Saturday and quite a few churches in Aberdeenshire, Fife and Glasgow too

Here's a link to the DoD website to check the dates and times they are open.

There are more places open next weekend too.
