Innerpeffray Library, Chapel, and Corbenic Poetry Path
The chapel was built in the 1500s by Lord Drummond, replacing an earlier 14thC chapel NN9018 : Welcome to Innerpeffray Chapel LinkExternal link. An upstairs room was used as a public lending library, but in 1762 it was moved to the adjacent building, with books upstairs and accommodation for the custodian downstairs. The library is the oldest free public lending library in Scotland, and a borrowers' ledger records every loan from 1747 until lending stopped in 1968. There is an amazing collection of around 5000 old books, from the 16thC and 17thC to the present day, covering many subjects, which can be held and consulted, with the help of knowledgeable and enthusiastic curator and volunteers LinkExternal link .
The poetry path is puzzle, since there is a nice display of poetry on slate and wood, and a note saying the path is three kilometres long through the Perthshire landscape, but it is nowhere near here - it is at Dunkeld, 23km away LinkExternal link . The small installation at Innerpeffray was for a Poetry event on 9 April.
