Please forward on to your friends!
Hello everyone!

We are busily preparing to fling our doors open again on Monday and can't express how excited we are to have you back browsing the shelves again.

You'll notice a few changes we've made to keep us all suitably socially distant and we hope you will all feel safe and relaxed when visiting us. Please get in touch if you'd like to ask any questions and get the lay of the land before you pop by.

Our new Opening Hours will be
12pm - 4pm Monday to Saturday 

 We'll be limiting the number of people in the shop at any one time but there will always be someone at the door to welcome you and to keep you right.

We know there are plenty of you who are still shielding and/or just aren't ready to shop with other people around and we firmly believe everyone should have equal opportunity to browse our books! With that in mind, we are offering Private Shopping in the mornings to anyone who would like the shop to themselves for half an hour.
We will be on hand to help or offer recommendations if you'd like them but there will be no other members of the public in the building for the duration of your visit.
Get in touch to book or for more information
(Free to book and no purchase necessary)

Services including Free Local Delivery and Click & Collect at our front door will continue for the foreseeable future so don't worry if you don't fancy shopping quite yet. We will still be bringing books to you!

Take care & we look forward to seeing you soon.

Book of the Month...

ARDNISH by Angus MacDonald 

The latest installment of the Gillies family saga is nearly here! 

Publication Date - 9th July 2020

Ardnish, the Highlands of Scotland, 1944. On his deathbed, Donald John Gillies sends for a priest to hear his last confession. During his 85 years he has witnessed much - world wars, the loss of family through death and emigration, and the daily struggles which face the small remote community.

Waiting anxiously for the priest, his mind travels back to the dusty plains of South Africa in 1901, where he fought as a Lovat Scout during the Boer War, and where he met the woman who was the love of his life. Forced to abandon her and her young daughter in a British concentration camp, DJ returns to Scotland and his old life after his camp is ambushed by Boers and many of his fellow soldiers are massacred.

As he lies dying, an unexpected visitor arrives at Ardnish making it more imperative than ever for DJ to come to terms with the past and to make peace with himself - and his family - while there is still time.

Highland Bookshop Reviews

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead

"Vivid and raw, this book portrays the honest brutality of the slave trade and the lives of enslaved people at the same time humanising and individualizing those trapped within its system, allowing them to step out from the pages of history and become more than just a statistic of the past."

Nature writing, farming and a man coming to grips first hand with our impact on the natural world. Laurie is a passionate, eloquent writer who’s love of Galloway saturates the pages of this wonderful book.
