The Blairgowrie Printers

The printing works in Blairgowrie was established in 1855 and was moved to a purpose built site in Reform Street in 1880. The owner, Hamilton Scott, worked there as an apprentice before taking over in 1980 until he retired in 2007. The printing works and the machinery were listed as Category B in 2003.

The Ericht Trust was asked to examine the feasibility of turning the premises into a museum or of relocating the printing presses to a new site where they could be made into a working museum and educational facility.

To date preliminary studies have shown that turning the existing premises into a museum would not be financially viable in the long term. The option of moving the printing presses to another site is still being evaluated with the help of experts from Robert Smailís Print Works in Innerleithen.

The appeal for funding to make a film about the Printers has been successful so thank you to all who contributed. We will soon be able to allow the public to view it.

The film is now complete and the Trust are pleased with the professional work done by film maker Birseland Media.
