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.
