At The Watermill we are passionate about books. 

We were voted UK Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2008-09 and continue to improve on what we were awarded for:

It is a dream bookshop, a treasure house of riches and surprises ...a haven for lovers of the printed word

We love to start habits early so we've got a whole room of books for children.

Dorothy and Sally are always happy to help you find what you are looking for and to make recommendations. We can order books we don't have in stock and they usually arrive the next day.

Jamie descibes the route to the scene of one of the images in Winter in Glen Lyon:

"The adventure starts at Loch an Daimph on Meggernie and Lochs Estates towards the top end of Glen Lyon. I am at the front of a small boat with two local stalkers, tasked with helping spot a way though the ice of the half-frozen loch to other side.

"It looks like we have made it through when our channel of clear water narrows between thick slabs of ice. A serrated edge scrapes ominously along the length of the hull. Steve steadies the boat while Ally resorts to smashing through the ice with the anchor on a shortened chain to beak through to the far shore."

Hardback, 128 pages 109 black & white photographs. £25 (post £2.55 per order UK, Europe and surface worldwide £11 per copy, air £18 per copy)
