An Awfully Big Adventure—Books for Boys & Girls

What were children borrowing from Innerpeffray?  A chance to have a look at the 19th century books with their gender specific marketing such as ‘Boy’s Own Library’ and some first edition classics from the Scottish collection such as Treasure Island and Peter and Wendy.

Genuine Jacobites? - 100years of Scottish Propaganda

From the birth of the Old Pretender to the death of Bonnie Prince Charlie this exhibition explores the battle for the crown of Scotland through the written word.  We are delighted to have some letters from a private collection on display as part of this exhibition.

The exhibitions run from 1 March to 31 October, and entry to all exhibitions is included in the ticket price of £7.50 for adults, under 16s free of charge.
