No excuses not to visit: it's FREE for 2 days

 I admit it, I'm alway going on about Innerpeffray Library. It's one of my absolutely favourite places in Scotland, a 250 year old building containing books dating back to 1502, next door to an ancient church with a leper squint. What's not to like?
If you're within travelling distance of Innerpeffray (it's near Crieff, in Perthshire, Scotland) but have never visited, now's your chance. You can even get in FREE if you go next weekend (22nd and 23rd September) because the library is taking part in Perth and Kinross Doors Open Days. You can read about it here: The Library will be open 10am-5pm on Saturday and 2-4pm on Sunday. One thing to remember: you can't handle books on these open days. There will be more visitors than usual so it isn't practical. If you have to get your hands on them, visit another time! There will however be introductory talks (see the above link for times) and plenty of gorgeous old books on display for you to drool over. Well, not literally drool. It's inadvisable to get 500 year old books damp...
