The Jacobites and their Legacy

The latest exhibition in the Library commemorates the 300th anniversary of the 1715 Jacobite Rising. The display includes books, manuscripts, artwork and artefacts from the University Library’s collections, as well as some books and broadsides from partner institutions – the Library of Innerpeffray ( and the Leighton Library in Dunblane (

You can see the exhibition during November, and then again in the New Year.
