A ruined Palladian mansion, a lost garden, the Wildlife Information Centre (TWIC) and the chance to learn more about local and family history at churches are some of the events on offer during this year’s Midlothian Doors Open Day.

A total of 28 venues have confirmed their participation in this year’s event on Saturday, September 13.

On the day, buildings that are not usually open to the public or normally charge for entry will open their doors, free of charge, to visitors.
