Scotland’s oldest lending library is now a museum of the books, the people and their story. At a site steeped in history from Roman times to living memory, the library offers visitors an unforgettable, hands-on experience of Scottish heritage.

Surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Strathearn at the edge of the Highlands, take a trip back in time to explore books read by local people. Our oldest book is from 1476, and there are many treasures from the early days of printing, as well as others from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

Find family and reading history in our Borrowers’ Register, which records the books lent to local people from 1747 to 1968.

The site at Innerpeffray also includes St Mary’s Chapel, with its fascinating graveyard, and Innerpeffray School, the local school until 1947.
