This weekend, 26th/27th September, is Doors Open, the annual event where public and private buildings allow access including behind the scenes views of places across Scotland.
2020, as we know, is different, and due to Covid restrictions, most places cannot allow access to the public as they once did.
But like so many events this year you can access it all virtually.
