[Innerpeffray Chapel]

Innerpeffray Chapel is an unassuming, smallish building next to Innerpeffray Library on the banks of the River Earn a few miles downstream from Crieff. The chapel was built in the 14th century as a private chapel for the local Drummond family, also becoming Scotland's first public lending library around a century later. The chapel's interior is beautiful (note: there's a light switch by the entrance door), apparently set out for a wedding on our visit. Fragments of paintings are still visible on the walls, and a small loft overlooking the rest of the chapel is accessed by a narrow set of stairs.
