The Watermill & Homer, Aberfeldy

Bookshop / Art Gallery / Cafe / Design-led Homeware 

Situated in the heart of Aberfeldy, Perthshire, The Watermill is a unique combination of award-winning bookshop, gallery, cafè and design-led homeware, on three floors of a converted oatmeal mill. 

The Watermill was opened in 2005 by Michael Palin, less than two years after owners Kevin and Jayne Ramage first viewed the derelict but enchanting listed mill building with the idea of creating a place to pursue a passion for books, music, art and coffee.

Beneath the Ice - Kenneth Steven book launch

Beneath the Ice tells the fascinating story of the Sami - the indigenous people of the Scandinavian Arctic. They have carved out an existence rich in tradition, where the old ways of reindeer herding, shamanic belief and the veneration of bears have not yet been forgotten. Kenneth Steven celebrates this unique culture in a collection of essays that chronicle his own lifelong love affair with the north, and his own encounters with the Sami.
