Hostelling Scotland has partnered with Scottish Civic Trust’s Doors Open Days and ScotRail for Braw Buildings. The project offers young people in Scotland the chance to stay in one of 6 youth hostels across Scotland, and take part in Doors Open Days.

Doors Open Days is a free, annual, architectural festival which celebrates Scotland’s amazing buildings and heritage. It involves over a thousand venues, with opportunities to go behind doors that are rarely open to the public. To find out more click here.

Hostelling Scotland is a self-funding charity with a network of youth hostels across Scotland, for all who wish to discover the real Scotland. If you'd like to find out more about youth hostels and what to expect, have look at our FAQ’s here
