Discover a hidden gem in the tranquil countryside of Perthshire. Relax on our river walk, explore the medieval Chapel grounds and step back in time on a tour of Scotland's first lending library.
A visit to Scotland’s oldest free, public lending library is a trip back in time to a museum where you can literally touch the past. At a site steeped in history from Roman times to living memory, the Library offers visitors a hands-on, unforgettable experience of Scottish heritage.
We are delighted to be open again from the 2nd June 2021. We have made some changes to ensure we can keep our visitors and staff safe: we have a timed entry system which you can book at https://innerpeffraylibrary.co.uk/ or by telephone. We have a waiting room in a gazebo outside the LIbrary entrance where one of our guides will meet you and take you to explore the Library. All our guide will have face coverings and we will ask you to wear a face covering (free masks will be available for visitors) and wash you hands or use sanitiser before and during your visit. All the details are on the Tour Booking page, please don't hesitate to call if you have any questions.
If you are unable to visit us yet, why not take an armchair Tour with the Keeper via our website: https://innerpeffraylibrary.co.uk/virtual-tours/
In its tranquil rural setting by the River Earn, travel back in time and explore the books, the people and the story of Innerpeffray. In 2019 we opened our riverside heritage trail, where you can wander beside the route of the Roman road, enjoy the peaceful landscape and wildlife of the outside space and a eat a picnic.
