“A booklover's paradise.”

The Bookmark Bookshop
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I was passing through Grantown and had an hour to spare. Than I discovered the Bookmark, what a gem of a bookshop. It is crammed to the roof with books of every kind. The owner is such a chatty, genuine and helpful person. In a time of internet shopping it warms the heart to find an independently owned bookstore full of charm. If I lived close enough, I could probably find a book that interests me, every week. Such is the charm of the shop. A gem.

The owner of this shop is incredibly knowledgable and will help you to find that special book, or order something in if it isn't in stock.

I went into this shop looking for a couple of books for a friend's son and came out feeling like the world was a slightly better place. The lady who runs the shop is a gem, full of knowledge and enthusiasm. If you only go to one shop in Grantown-on-Spey, make it this one. Make sure to pay with two pound coins if you can too...

This is the bookstore that the serious reader loves to find (and dreams of owning). The Bookmark is well-stocked with a wide variety of reading material or all sorts of readers. Her Scottish section is particularly well stocked and the children/ young adult is superb.

The owner herself is a repository of knowledge about books. Need a recommendation? Need help encouraging your kids to read? Go into the book mark and she will give a wide variety to choose from. She is also someone to get information about the local community.

She is serious about her reading and wants to pass on the enthusiasm.
