Festive News from
The Highland Bookshop


We've now been open for a whole 17 months (give or take a couple of days) and what a time we've had!

2018 has been especially kind to us with a full calendar of author events, book launches and a gloriously busy summer season. We had a couple of nominations (Scottish Independent Bookshop of the Year in the Booksellers Association Awards and Outdoor Retailer of the Year in The Great Outdoors Magazine Awards) which we didn't win (this year!) Happily, we have just heard we are going to appear in the Lonely Planet Great Britain Guide in 2019! This is such wonderful news for us and we couldn't have done it without you all.

We will be open until 4pm on Christmas Eve!

Read on for our full festive opening hours and a small selection of things we would love to unwrap ourselves on Christmas morning. We have far too many favourites to feature but if you can make it into the shop this week we would love to help you choose the perfect gifts for your loved ones.

And, don't forget we have Gift Vouchers and National Book Tokens for those hard to buy for bibliophiles! 

We'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone who has shopped with us, supported us, voted for us and followed our social media activities in 2018.

Happy Christmas and all the best in 2019!

Sarah-Lou, Kelsey & the rest of The Highland Bookshop Team
