A printers, vet school and even a bat walk are just some of the attractions on offer at this year’s Midlothian Doors Open Day.

So far, 29 venues have confirmed they are taking part in this year’s event on Saturday, September 14.

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

The Penicuik Community Development Trust has agreed to open the Pen-y-Coe Press for the first time. Cousland Local History Project will allow visitors to take a self-guided tour of village archaeological sites including Cousland Windmill, The Nunnery, Smiddy and Limeworks.

And why not take a tour of the Veterinary Teaching Building at Easter Bush, look round the Roslin Institute or enjoy an evening bat walk at Vogrie Country Park.
