St Peter’s opens doors

Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

A fa­mous aban­doned ruin in Cardross will open to the pub­lic for one week­end only as part of Doors Open Day.

Free walk­ing tours of St Peter’s Sem­i­nary will take place on Septem­ber 23 and 24 as part of the fes­ti­val, which gives peo­ple the chance to ex­plore hid­den gem build­ings which nor­mally have re­stricted ac­cess.

The last time the sem­i­nary was open to the pub­lic was for the Hin­ter­land ini­tia­tive, which at­tracted 8000 peo­ple in March 2016.

West Dun­bar­ton­shire usu­ally takes part in the fes­ti­val but this year just one build­ing in the area, Strath­leven House, will throw open its doors.

In He­lens­burgh area Cardross Par­ish Church, He­lens­burgh Par­ish Church, The Hill House, Claren­don House, Rhu and Shan­don Church, Royal North­ern and Clyde Yacht Club, St Ma­hews RC Church, St Michaels and All An­gels Church, He­lens­burgh and Lomond Civic Cen­tre and Mack­in­tosh Club will all be open.

Ar­gyll and Bute Coun­cil leader Aileen Mor­ton said: “Doors Open Day is a re­ally en­joy­able day out and we are de­lighted to be a part of it. It is a great op­por­tu­nity for peo­ple to get into un­usual and in­ter­est­ing build­ings.”
