About the event

10.30am to 1pm, Monday 8 October 2018

A visit to a gem of printing history, still an operational letterpress printer and an important part of Scotland’s industrial heritage.

It's now owned and managed by the National Trust for Scotland. See the printing process in action, some of which date back to the Victorian era – and shelves of type which line the walls, revealing the changing fashions for typefaces. See how newspapers, tickets and posters were printed before the computer age and explore Robert Smail’s office, scarcely altered since 1866.
