  • Absolutely loved this bookshop! Had so many different books and beautiful prints. The vibes of this bookshop were immaculate. It was the first place I visited after settling into Inverness and it was a very warm welcome with the wood burning stove.
  • Large space with a distinctly old-fashioned look and a very distinctive paper musky smell. Great to check on a couple of books and souvenirs with a great library atmosphere. Be warned it can get very busy and there is no place to sit and relax. Very much worth the visit, but not a spot to stay at for long.
