November News...


The chilly, wintery weather is creeping in and with it comes every bookseller's favourite time of year: we like to call it the official season of 'curling up in front of the fire with a good book'.

We've a very busy week coming up with not one, not two but three author events plus late night shopping this Friday the 23rd. Phew! Read on for more details...

If you are ready to think about Christmas gifts do drop by and have a look at our new displays and ever growing selection of books, calendars and gifts. We've been working hard over the last few months to make sure we have (hopefully) everything you will need for the upcoming festivities. And, if we don't have what you are looking for on the day, we can order over 200,000 different titles (not all at once!) for delivery in 72 hours. 

For those hard to buy for family members we have Highland Bookshop Gift Vouchers available in any denomination and for those true book lovers we offer a bespoke Monthly Gift Book Subscription Service. Ask any of our staff for further details.

Keep an eye out on social media for updates on new books, events and general bookshop news!


We hope to see you soon!
