Impressed by the window display, I ventured inside - to find a wonderful haven of books. Character, charm & charisma greeted me! It may be a small shop, but it has a heart as big as Scotland. I loved it! A must-visit if you’re in Grantown. Love books? You’ll love this shop!

What a find! We were in the area and my son asked if there was a nearby bookshop.
When we entered, the owner was on the phone, but as soon as she finished she welcomed us and asked what type of book my son was looking for. She spent a long time recommending lots of books we hadn’t heard of before, she then left him to narrow down the options. He chose three books and left a very happy customer.
I couldn’t resist and also made three purchases!

What a great bookshop the owner is so knowledgable and helpful. I was trying to locate a book on Tomintoul which is out of print and she suggested I contact the author, I did and now have a copy for family research. Thank You

Friendly staff, excellent and eclectic range of books to sort all tastes.

Staff actively encourage youngsters to engage with the books - none of the ‘if you touch it you buy it’ you sometimes see in the larger book chains.

They could not have been more helpful for my two daughters - and even gave our youngest a book gift when she couldn’t decide which ones to take and was unsure about a new author.

Great to see independents thriving!

So thrilled to visit The Bookmark again. I went in with a suggested list of books by Scottish authors & came away with all of them! The staff are so helpful & friendly & went backwards & forwards finding them all for me. I work on the basis that you can never have too many books, so I was in my element!

Seriously, it's a great, independent bookshop. I'm sure that if I lived nearer I would be in there every week!

My visit to The Bookmark Bookshop was opportunistic (we happened to park opposite the shop) and intended to be a quick in and out. But there was no way that I could leave quickly...

It is always a joy to find a bookshop owner who not only loves books (and knows the books that she stocks) but is also interested in the customers. I went in looking for one title (which I found) but left with three after the owner's recommendations (I wish I had taken the opportunity to buy more).

What a gem of a bookshop. I could have spent all day talking with the owner and listening to her recommendations to add to my reading list! A must visit if you are in the area. They also have a fantastic selection of childrens books if you are holidaying in the area and the kids need a new read! Can't wait to visit again!

Always a lovely chat with Majorie and her excellent recommendations.
My wee boy was delighted to meet not one but two famous authors in The Bookmark today.

There is not a formula to the success of this wonderful bookshop that could easily be franchised. How do you replicate a wee wuman and her assistant, both with a passion for books and who want your next book to be memorable.

"What is your favourite book?" I was asked. Pretty much an impossible question to answer but I gave it a bash.

Out I walked with A Gentleman in Moscow (and three other books) assured that I would love it. Few books are truly enriching, the story of the Count was.

My favourite bookshop, there will be detours in the future simply to visit.
