August 4, 2017


The Watermill was opened in 2005 by Michael Palin, less than two years after owners Kevin and Jayne Ramage first viewed the derelict but enchanting listed mill building with the idea of creating a place to pursue a passion for books, music, art and coffee. The bookshop has the largest range of titles in the Scottish highlands.
They were awarded UK Independent Bookshop of the Year in 2009 on the merit of our variety, customer service and events we host to promote reading.

The Watermill range is extensive with local interest and Scottish history, fiction, young adult fiction, poetry, travel writing, gardening, cookery, history and much more.

Inside The Watermill you will find a whole room of books for children. They often hold children’s book events as they are very popular
