This is the oldest purpose-built library in Scotland and was founded on the collection of Robert Leighton, Bishop of Dunblane, 1661-1670. In his will, Leighton left a sum of money for the building of the library for use by the clergy of Dunblane diocese. The library now houses around 4,500 volumes printed in 89 languages, including Greek, Persian, Syrian and Gaelic. Still to be seen in the library are “Twelve chairs of turkie red lether”, part of the original bequest. Under the guidance of our amazing volunteer custodians, visitors are allowed carefully to handle and inspect volumes from the collection. The library is open from the beginning of May until the end of September Mon-Sat, 11am – 1pm. Free to visit but donations much appreciated!Address: The Cross
