Brechin Diocesan Library
This collection of c10,000 books and manuscripts has been on permanent loan from the Episcopal Diocese of Brechin since 1961, and consists largely of theological books, some of great bibliographic interest. The Library was set up 1792 as a subscription library by and for the Episcopalian clergy of the Diocese of Brechin. In later years it was enriched by bequests, notably the bulk of the personal collections of William Abernethy Drummond (1719?-1809), successively Bishop of Brechin and Bishop of Edinburgh, and Alexander Penrose Forbes (1817-1875), Bishop of Brechin.
Almost all card catalogue records for this collection have now been converted to online records, but there are still a few works for which you will need to consult the card catalogue in the Main Library. Manuscripts from this collection are housed in Archive Services.
