The library - the oldest in Scotland - has undergone some major renovations to the exterior. Gone is the roughcast to reveal the original stone walls. There is now access to the ground floor along with the library upstairs. Well worth a visit to hear about the history of Leighton and his collection of books.

Really unique place. It is so exciting to see so many ancient books. The librarian is willing to answer all questions, you can even ask to open the book you like and look through it. Definitely a must to visit if you are in Dunblane👍🏻

The Leighton Library is named after Robert Leighton who was Bishop of Dunblane between 1662-1670 and Bishop of Glasgow from 1670 to 1674. The building was built in 1687 as a result of the bequest of his extensive private library to the town, along with £100.

As one might expect, the bulk of the books are religious, but there are also many interesting books to do with travel, history, natural history, general literature and even the travel journal of Queen Victoria’s journey to the Highlands, which she donated to the library in 1868. Of further Royal interest is William Sanderson’s account of the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, and to bring Royal connection more up to date, the Queen visited the library in 1967.

Currently entrance to the library is free, but I would encourage all visitors to make a donation to help towards the maintenance of the beautiful building and the fabulous collection of books it contains.

And thanks must go to the dedicated and very knowledgable trustees and volunteers who look after this invaluable collection and make it available to others.

A unique place, a gem for bibliophiles and a fascinating opportunity to reflect on the life of educated people over the 300 years since it was established.Two enthusiastic and friendly volunteers shared their extensive knowledge with us. The visit really enhanced our tour of the lovely town of Dunblane. Do check opening hours - it's run by volunteers and is only open for a couple of hours a day, May to September, 6 days a week.

Etonnante. Pour les amateurs des livres anciens (15 au 18ième siècle), c'est un must. Les dames qui surveillent sont d'une gentillesse remarquable. Comme beaucoup d'endroits, c'est gratuit.

Worth a quick visit, unless you are an expert if antique books and want to spend longer, the staff in this charming little private library, are more than happy to share their knowledge with much affability.
