5,000 Free Tickets from Historic Scotland

By | Category: Travel news

Next weekend you have the chance to visit one of 44 properties owned by Historic Scotland. Normally you would be charged an admission fee but on this one weekend, you will get in free if you are lucky enough to get one of the free vouchers.
How do you get one? You go to www.ticketgiveaway.co.uk and register there for a voucher. Take the voucher and proof of identity – something with a photograph will probably be the best solution – to your chosen site and that’s all there is to it. Now 5,000 tickets isn’t a vast number given the number of people who would normally visit one of their sites each weekend so there are a further 5,000 tickets at half price for entry into Edinburgh Castle. For this offer, go to the website, register and you will receive a voucher that you can use to cut the price of entry by a half. That could save you up to £25 or so depending on the number of people in your party.
Although Historic Scotland looks after 345 properties, only 78 require an admission fee. So in giving away free tickets to over half of their properties, it’s quite an attractive offer if you don’t have much planned for next weekend.
Where can you go?
There is a full list on the same website mentioned earlier but the main thing is that just about wherever you live in Scotland – or nestling in England on the Borders – you should be able to get to one of the sites easily. Maeshowe and Skara Brae are included in the scheme in the Orkneys, (but nothing in the Shetlands) there are 5 sites in Dumfries and Galloway, 4 in the Borders, 5 in Edinburgh & the Lothians (plus Edinburgh Castle of course, 4 in Glasgow and Ayrshire, 6 in the central and west areas, 3 in Fife, 5 in Perthshire, Kinross and Fife, 8 in the Highlands and Grampian and the Blackhouse in Arnol in the Western Isles.
