St Andrews Day

On the 30 November each year we celebrate St Andrew, the patron saint of Scotland, whose crucifixion on the diagonal cross by the Romans is represented by the Saltire, our national flag, a white diagonal cross on an azure background. Many of the institutions which look after our national heritage are celebrating this weekend by granting free access to many of their historic sites, gardens and areas of stunning natural beauty. So If you are heading in this direction or are already here, check out for free entries to Historic Scotland and the National trust for Scotland properties.
