The Big Draw
Visitors to abbeys, cathedrals and chapel sites across Scotland can take part in The Big Draw, the world’s largest drawing festival, this October.
This year, in the Year of Natural Scotland, we are encouraging our visitors to draw their natural surroundings with the opportunity to draw the view from a window at one of our participating sites.
