Watermill Bookshop features on list of 'World's Greatest Bookshops'


STOP PRESS: In a wonderful suprise, New Yorker cartoonist Bob Eckstein has included The Watermill Bookshop in his collection of 75 shops worldwide. Our inclusion came after recomendation from Michael Palin. The book Footnotes, a lovely collection of75 watercolour images of stunning bookshops from San Framcisco to Venice (via Aberfeldy), is available from the Watermill at £15.99 plus £2.50 postage - just call 01887 822896.

The book has also led to major media features including The Herald newspaper and The Scotsman website

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.
