About Doors Open Days East Renfrewshire 2017

This year East Renfrewshire's Doors Open Days will be on Saturday 9th September and Sunday 10th September.

Doors Open Days celebrate the 26th annual European Heritage Days. This is your chance to get into buildings in both public and private ownership that would not normally be open to the public. This year 11 buildings in East Renfrewshire open their doors and you can take a guided walk of Cathcart Cemetery.

Programme Highlights


Greenbank Garden
Set less than a mile from Glasgow’s bustling Southside suburbs the Garden is an oasis of tranquillity with some serious gardening inspiration.

Giffnock Synagogue
Visitors will be given a guided tour of this beautiful synagogue with full explanations on the Jewish faith.

Whitelee Visitor Centre
Visit the UK’s largest onshore windfarm, just 20 minutes from central Glasgow. Free craft activities running throughout the day and regular guided bus tours taking you up close to the turbines – you can even hug one if you really want!

Neilston Parish Church
The history of the church dates back to 1165 and the current building, dating from 1760 reopened in 2004 after a £1 million restoration. Come and see this fine example of 18th century ecclesiastical architecture and hear organ recitals throughout the day.

Barrhead Men’s Shed
New to Doors Open Days this year! The shed provides the tools and the space for various projects so come for a guided tour and see what it’s all about.

Walk: Cathcart Cemetery
Join Roger Guthrie of the Alexander Thomson Society for a guided walk around the cemetery and see an Egyptian temple, Gothic, Greek, Romanesque and art nouveau designs.
