An amazing bookshop with the best bookseller in the country. Great selection of books and brilliant knowledge of available stock. So helpful that she delivered books to our guest house in tomintoul. This is what a bookshop should be.

Visited this bookshop to browse and found out about their Festival of books. We attended the festival and had an amazing time. Can't wait to do the event next year and visit the shop again for a coffee and book date
