Doors Open Days in Inverclyde this year will include a James Watt tour and Watt Lego! events in local libraries.

See full listings here.

Look out for activities in Inverclyde on August 31 and September 1.

Doors Open Days helps people see inside buildings not normally (or always) open to the public.

A spokesperson for Inverclyde Council said: “The programme has a James Watt theme which includes a James Watt historical trail and the ever-popular tourist bus tours of Port Glasgow, Kilmacolm and Gourock.

“Over the weekend the Find the Watts Children’s Challenge will also see kids hunting for six, mini James Watts that will be hidden in some of the buildings along the Greenock Town Trail. There will be themed arts and crafts provided by Rig Arts in the Tobacco Warehouse for them to enjoy as well.”
