After Five Successful Years, we hope to make 2016 even better!
Linlithgow Civic Trust has organised West Lothian’s Doors Open Days since 2011 and we look forward to doing so for a sixth time in 2016. The likely dates are 10 and 11 September 2016, to coincide (as we have always done) with Linlithgow Folk Festival. The overlap has been mutually advantageous – well exemplified on sunny afternoons when building visitors have mingled with the audience at music sessions.
A varied programme was achieved once again in 2015, with new venues added to balance deletions. A popular choice was to view work in progress at Duntarvie Castle near Winchburgh, courtesy of Geoffrey Nicholsby of kiltmaker Geoffrey (Taylor). Small groups were escorted round the site by Ed Kelly of EKJN Architects and Scott Gibson, stonemason, who have both been busy renovating the castle for a number of years.
