Edinburgh and the Lothians Sights


National Library of Scotland

National Library of Scotland Review

Founded in 1689, the library has a superb collection of books and manuscripts on the history and culture of Scotland, and also mounts regular exhibitions. Genealogists investigating family trees come here, and amateur family sleuths will find the staff helpful in their research.
