Leighton Library

leighton_library_from_east_com.jpgThe Leighton Library is the oldest private library in Scotland, dating from 1687. It was built for the 1,500 books of Robert Leighton, Bishop of Dunblane (1661-1670). The number of books has now grown to 4,500, covering a wide range of topics printed from 1504-1840.  At least 80 languages have been identified. The catalogue of contents is now available to academics and researchers through arrangement with Stirling University

The library is open to the general public from the beginning of May until the end of September as follows:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 11am - 1pm and other times by arrangement with Tho. & J W Barty tel: 01786 822296. In addition the library is regularly included in Stirling Council Doors Open Weekends in September each year.
