The Library of Innerpeffray, Perthshire, was founded along with a school around 1680 by David Drummond, 3rd Lord Madertie, who wanted to make books and reading available to all.

This idea may seem commonplace now, but Innerpeffray was the first free public lending library in Scotland – and, amazingly, it still holds the Borrowing Register dating back to the 17th century.


The Library of Innerpeffray have  a unique heritage and amongst its extensive collection are rare first editions of Robert Burns and a valuable selection of early books from all over Europe. 

It is now a hands-on museum where it is possible to explore the story of the local people who visited in the past.

It is a wondeful library to visit
