Books, Cards, Gifts and more

Spread over two floors of an attractive Georgian building, we stock practically every genre. General fiction, classics, sci-fi, history, travel, cookery, poetry, nature writing, OS maps, travel guides and Scottish interest can be found on the ground floor of the building, while all the children's books and toys are downstairs in our cosy Little Owls section.

We pride ourselves on offering the highest level of customer service and with so many titles in stock, we’re pretty confident that we’ll be able to find the title you’re looking for, as well as a few you didn’t know you wanted! If we don’t have the title you’re looking for in stock, we offer a free ordering service so please just ask and we'll help you out!

The Further From Festival 2024!

We have a cracking line-up planned for you this year including Sara Sheridan, Mark 'Mavis' Reilly, Claire Askew and more!
