Councillor Aileen Morton, Leader of Argyll and Bute Council, said:

“Doors Open Day has something to offer everyone and this is a great opportunity for local people to be involved in a really interesting initiative. Volunteers will be crucial to the successful delivery of the event and we are keen to hear from anyone who would like to support this event.”

“We are happy to work with Helensburgh Heritage Trust and invite people from all over Scotland to visit buildings across Helensburgh and Lomond.
