Scottish Crannog Centre & Innerpeffray Library

Ticket sales have now ended.

This year’s summer excursion is to two important heritage sites of historic and educational interest in Perthshire. Complete with expert guided tours in the morning and afternoon, lunch and coach transportation for the whole day trip, leaving and returning from Edinburgh.

In the morning we will visit the Scottish Crannog Centre and its new museum and learn about the first crannogs in Scotland, those built ~2,500 years ago.      

In the afternoon we will visit Innerpeffray Library, Scotland’s first free public lending library founded in 1680 which holds rare books in its diverse collection.
