A particularly wide selection of theatrical-interest books including plays - not usually seen in book shops like this. Dog friendly as well, and that's most unusual! Very friendly and helpful. Wish I lived there so I could use the shop regularly, but did get stocked up while just visiting on hols.

This is a must visit place in an ideal location on platform 1 of Pitlochry train station. There is a good selection of books well laid out in a light shop. If you need a book before you get on a train then visit this place or visit if not getting a train.
