One of Falkirk district’s most historic buildings is opening its doors for free tours this weekend.

Kinneil House in Bo’ness – which boasts amazing renaissance wall paintings – will be open from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, March 19, 2016 (last admission 11.30 a.m.)

The open morning is to support the Hippodrome Festival of Silent Cinema, which is also taking place in the town this week.

Saturday’s event is one of eight open events at Kinneil in 2016. They have been organised by The Friends of Kinneil in association with Historic Environment Scotland and Falkirk Community Trust.

A Friends spokesperson said: “We’re looking forward to Saturday’s open morning. Hopefully lots of local people will come along. There’s no need to book tickets, just turn up – although children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Kinneil Museum will also be open from 10 a.m. to support the House event.”

The House is located within the historic Kinneil Estate, on the western edge of Bo’ness. More details are online at www.kinneil.org.uk/freein2016 

Leaflets are also available from local tourist offices and libraries.
