Fascinating day at Tomintoul & Glenlivet Discovery Centre learning about garment construction and textile heritage as part of our Tomintoul Coat Replica project. Huge thanks to Lara and Egle for giving an insight into the history of the coat and the making of the replica. Thanks also to the Highland Guild of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers for joining us. Great to see the child-size replicas finished and ready for younger visitors to try on when the Discovery Centre reopens it’s doors on Friday 27th March.

Help us celebrate the UK’s incredible and diverse heritage by joining our annual #HeritageTreasures day across social media this Saturday 11 January.

What does heritage mean to you? Maybe it's a precious memory; a story passed down through generations; a public park you take walks in; a museum you visit regularly; or the birds you see in your garden?

However you define it, we're inviting you to share your #HeritageTreasures with us on social media on Saturday 11 January.

Post a picture and tell us why you've chosen it, and don't forget to include the #HeritageTreasures hashtag so we – and everyone else – can see what you've picked. We'll be resharing the top posts.

Need some inspiration?
