  • 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!
  • Amazing the amount of books they have here
  • Always take a trip to Scotlands book town when we are visiting my family in Newton Stewart. This is a favourite shop, I always spend time looking at the vintage maps, old atlases and everything else besides!
