  • Ideal shop in which to browse on a rainy day in search of almost any title you could wish for. Helpful staff happy to assist.
  • Wigtown is famed for many things, it's multitude of bookshops being one. This shop in particular was fantastic, as a bibliophile I thoroughly enjoyed the space, and yes I did buy a book.
  • Books you can't find anywhere else,well set out,best selection of books I've seen.Well worth a visit!
