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:

a wide choice of books, friendly and knowledgable staff, events, and thoughtful displays.

Our range is extensive: local interest and Scottish history, fiction, young adult fiction, poetry, travel writing, gardening, cookery, history and much more.

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


Carla Carlisle, The Spectator

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.

Sunshine and snow

Posted: Sat 14th Jan

Life is good It's a wonderful crisp, sunny, snowy day here at The Watermill. The baristas are working to a soundtrack of mellow jazz and the coffee smells fantastic. People stamp the snow off their boots as they come in and either go down for a cup of something warming or upstairs for a wander through the gallery or set about having a serious browse among the books. A customer is in a comfy chair between the poetry section and Thrillers having a quiet read. Life is good!!
