Dunkeld Chapter House Museum has recently renovated a disused public toilet block to house its extensive, and ever growing, archive collection (The Courier, Highland Perthshire Comment, Avocado Sweet). It is located at the northwest corner of the Square (The Cross) in Dunkeld, adjacent to the building known as “Duchess Anne”.

Clare and Murray Nicoll visited the Archives recently and found the building to look quite modern, as can be seen in these photographs.

In the Archive holdings, there are photographs of the area, school classes and news items, as well as Kirk and school records concerning the Parishioners.

Although the staff have not yet completed the list of holdings, below is a sample of the items held which would be of interest to a Family History Society researcher.
