Lon­don’s Open House week­end is cel­e­brat­ing a quar­ter cen­tury, and now in­cludes more than 700 build­ings, tours and events in an ef­fort to show off the city’s var­ied ar­chi­tec­ture, es­pe­cially places not nor­mally open to the wider pub­lic. While the likes of 30 St Mary Axe (bet­ter known as the Gherkin) are yearly favourites, it’s also a chance to peek into pri­vate houses, such as 6 Wood Lane (above) – a win­ner in this year’s RIBA Re­gional Awards.

Glengoyne Dis­tillery is set at the foot of Dum­goyne Hill, sur­rounded by wood­land which al­legedly pro­vided a hiding place for out­law Rob Roy McGregor
