Saturday 18 April 2015 is World Heritage Day and this year the theme is the value of heritage. World Heritage Day is celebrated around the globe to raise awareness of our diverse cultural and natural heritage and why World Heritage Sites are of outstanding value.
There are a number of events planned to mark the occasion with the Scottish Storytelling Centre hosting an afternoon of activities on Saturday 18 April to help you get to know more about all five World Heritage Sites in Scotland. You could also take the opportunity to follow one of the Edinburgh World Heritage walking trails to discover the hidden gems of the Old and New Towns.
There are more details on Historic Scotland’s website about World Heritage Day and the other Scottish sites they help manage.
