The Aberfeldy Watermill Bookshop, Gallery & Cafe


 The Bookshop and Homer are now open again seven days a week.

It will be a wee bit longer for the cafe and a new exhibition in the gallery (we are hoping July 15th but await further announcements from the Government).


We are doing everything we can to make shopping safe – for you and for our team - and we will be working to keep the friendly atmosphere... 

The Watermill is a big airy building, but we will limit customer numbers if necessary.

Hand sanitising stations as you come in

Card payments only please


If you are feeling unsure, you don't need to come in at all. As soon as we are open you can give us a phone and your books will be ready to collect, we can deliver free in Aberfeldy and Weem. Further afield we will post them out (£4 charge, over £50 carriage free).

There are lots of wonderful new titles becoming available right now, and we are really excited about getting back to bookselling, and above all seeing you soon!

The Watermill Team

Aberfeldy Watermill Bookshop, Gallery & Cafe is a three-storey former oatmeal mill in the picturesque Highland Perthshire town of Aberfeldy.

The Watermill was opened in 2005 by Michael Palin. In 2009 we were awarded UK Independent Bookshop of the Year and in 2016, included in the New Yorker book of 75 Greatest Bookstores in the World.

As you expect in an old mill, the bookshop is full of nooks and crannies! We have a range of titles including fiction, non-fiction, Scottish and local interest, walks and maps, and also a dedicated children’s room. In the café you can enjoy excellent coffee, fine teas and home bakes, or a light menu of local produce with vegan options.

Upstairs, the art gallery has a changing programme of exhibitions. Next door is our homeware shop, Homer, which specialises in decorative homeware and exclusive tweed upholstered furniture.

We look forward to seeing you!
