Doors Open Days is Scotland’s largest free festival that celebrates heritage and the built environment.  It offers free access to over a thousand venues across the country throughout September, every year. http://www.doorsopendays.org.uk

The focal point of the beautiful 85 acre Crichton Estate is the cathedral-style Crichton Memorial Church, designed by Edinburgh architect Sydney Mitchell, 1890-97. The Church features a nave, chancel, transepts and a 123 feet high square tower over the crossing.The richly detailed exterior is of red sandstone from Locharbriggs and the elegant interior features sandstone from nearby Thornhill. Inside the church you will find a stunning oak roof and floors of Irish and Sicilian marble under foot and superb furnishings, including a stone carving by William Vickers of Glasgow illuminated by the impressive stained glass by Oscar Paterson of Glasgow.
