A little bit about us
Situated in a Grade A listed building, in the heart of Linlithgow's historic High Street, we are a general bookshop, with a broad range of titles, specialising in children's books and Scottish titles. Our friendly knowledgeable staff are always willing to help, or leave you to browse in peace. We run a varied programme of events throughout the year for children and adults, and now have a brand new event space, The Bothy, available for hire. We also have BB & Hardy - our rabbit and guinea pig - who help to make regular story-telling sessions a bit more special. We stock a large range of quality gifts and stationery as well as contemporary and vintage jewellery and accessories of all kinds. We also have a huge range of toys and games in our dedicated children's department including Orchard Toys and Bigjigs.
