A community bookshop right there on the railway station selling all books (all wonderfully diverse books) for 1 pound each. Your hand quivers as you try to limit yourself to just 4 or 5 as you don't want the ectra weight in your luggage but like an alcoholic in a brewery this takes extreme willpower. And the volunteers actually help... More

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.

Noticed the shop as I got off the train, so I went in to have a look. I came out with two books for £1.50 and both were in impeccable condition. There is such a wide selection, and the lady serving was very helpful. You can also buy coffee to drink while browsing!

Basically this is a 2nd hand bookshop at the station which raises money for a variety of good causes. However it is so much more. The staff are friendly and we have on numerous occasions found books that we have been after for a while or never seen before. I am not talking rare first edition books here (although I... More
