Doors Open Day at the Argyll Papers

The Argyll Papers is the family and estate archive of the Campbell family, dukes of Argyll.

One of the most important private archives in Britain, it is a rich resource for Scottish and British history from the 13th to the 21st centuries, and attracts researchers from all over the world. A small selection of the archives' treasures will be on display, themed around innovation, architecture and design.

The archive is housed in Cherry Park, an elegant 18th century Palladian style farm steading, designed for the 5th Duke of Argyll by John Adam and Robert Mylne, with some early 19th century alterations by Joseph Bonomi.

The archive will be open on Saturday 24 September 2016.

Free guided tours are scheduled for 1.00pm & 2.30pm - max 12 per tour.
