Former Prime Minister’s home to open doors in Moray

Visitors will be able to browse a former prime minister’s home during a free event in Moray next month.

The doors of The Hillocks, in Lossiemouth – once home to Ramsay MacDonald, who led the country during the 1920s – will be thrown open to guests on September 6.

Mr Macdonald’s granddaughter Iona will be giving guided tours of the property throughout the event, organised as part of Doors Open Day.

The nationwide event aims to encourage people to learn more about their local history and heritage.

More than a dozen other free attractions in Lossiemouth taking part include the Fisheries Museum, Covesea Lighthouse and the Windswept brewery.

Several of the tours must be booked in advance and opening times will vary between 10am-4pm.
