News and Events

Book Launch: "Royal and Ancient Peebles" by Ronald Ireland

Peebles Civic Society would like to draw members' attention to the launch of a fascinating new book by our former chairman, Ronald Ireland. The book, "Royal and Ancient Peebles", documents the history of the Royal Burgh of Peebles from its earliest beginnings and tells of its place in the wider context of Scottish History.
