The Watermill is now closed for this present time.
If you urgently need a book, you can order from us for delivery by courier - as long as our supplier and couriers are still operating. Otherwise we look forward to seeing you just as soon as it is safe and proper to open again.
The 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!
