Located in the historic centre of Dunblane, Leighton Library is the oldest private library in Scotland.
Leighton Library is the oldest private library in Scotland and was founded on the collection of Robert Leighton who was the Bishop of Dunblane from 1661 - 1670.
This simple, two storey, rectangular building with a steeply sloping tiled roof and crow-stepped gables is situated near to Dunblane Cathedral, part of which dates from 1240.
The plain, east facade leads up to the moulded library doorway and is transformed by the magnificent, if weathered, carved stone armorial panel in baroque style - with the inscription Bibliotheca Leightoniana. The west facade has pleasant round-heated windows.
Visitors are, under guidance of the volunteer custodians, allowed to handle and inspect volumes of this unique collection.
