Iona Abbey

Iona Abbey


To celebrate the end of the Year of Homecoming, Historic Scotland is flinging open the doors of over 40 properties, free of charge, this weekend.

The weekend of 28 and 29 November, just before St Andrew’s Day, has been chosen to give everyone the chance to enjoy these historic buildings and sites for free. The attractions included in the free weekend include the fascinating Dallas Dhu Distillery in Morayshire, Edinburgh Castle (which will also be open free on St Andrew’s Day), Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness, and Iona Abbey. A full list of the participating properties can be found at the Historic Scotland website.
