A community bookshop right there on the railway station selling all books (all wonderfully diverse books) for 1 pound each.

This is a charity bookshop and well worth visiting, even if you're not taking a train. Books are divided into sections, and you can be sure to find something to fit your taste. They have a good Collectible section of hardbacks as well as Scottish and Childrens books. Very friendly volunteer staff who will take time to talk to you.
