St An­drew’s Day free­bies

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE - Chris Marzella

Tick­ets to some of Stir­ling area’s top his­toric land­marks are to be given away to mark St An­drew’s Day.

His­toric En­vi­ron­ment Scot­land (HES), who op­er­ate the sites, is launch­ing a free ticket give­away to some of cen­tral Scot­land’s top her­itage vis­i­tor at­trac­tions.

HES has thou­sands of free tick­ets to give away for Satur­day and Sun­day Novem­ber 24 and 25.

Doune Cas­tle, famed for its ap­pear­ance in the hit TV se­ries Out­lander, is amongst 35 at­trac­tions tak­ing part in the pro­mo­tion through­out Scot­land. Other par­tic­i­pat­ing sites in cen­tral Scot­land in­clude Stir­ling Cas­tle, which was shaped by gen­er­a­tions of Scot­tish mon­archs, and the fortress of Cas­tle Camp­bell, which sits high above Dol­lar Glen.

The reg­is­tra­tion for free tick­ets will close at 5pm on Fri­day, Novem­ber 23. Vis­i­tors will get the chance to claim their free tick­ets by reg­is­ter­ing on­line at www. tick­et­give­ and ap­ply­ing for tick­ets to the at­trac­tion of their choice.

Ticket Give­away is part of the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’sWin­ter Fes­ti­vals which kicks off with St An­drew’s Day and car­ries through Christ­mas and Hog­manay and up un­til Burns Night.

Stephen Dun­can, direc­tor of com­mer­cial and tourism at HES, said: “Ex­plor­ing our sites is a great way to learn more about Scot­land’s fas­ci­nat­ing past and we want to en­cour­age com­mu­ni­ties to take a step back in time and learn more about the sig­nif­i­cant his­toric sto­ries in their lo­cal area.

“By par­tic­i­pat­ing in the St An­drew’s ticket give­away vis­i­tors will have the op­por­tu­nity to ac­cess our iconic cas­tles, abbeys and palaces for free over the week­end, so there is some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“If you’ve never vis­ited your lo­cal his­toric site, then this is the per­fect op­por­tu­nity as it gives vis­i­tors the unique chance to get a taste of what’s avail­able in their area for free.”
