Our Independent Bookshop

The Highland Bookshop opened in Fort William in July 2017. Occupying a large and attractive traditional building right in the middle of the town’s busy High Street, the shop was officially opened by best-selling author Alexander McCall Smith.

The shop was set up by Kevin & Jayne Ramage, owners of the award winning Watermill Bookshop in Aberfeldy, in collaboration with Angus MacDonald, a Lochaber-based author and entrepreneur.

The shop has an extensive range of titles across all subjects including Scottish interest, the outdoors, children’s, fiction, as well as all non-fiction areas like history, food & drink. Out first floor is home to The Outdoor Lounge, a burgeoning secondhand book selection and a generous exhibition space where we host author events and signings.

With knowledgeable and welcoming staff to assist you with any query, The Highland Bookshop is a destination for book lovers of all kinds.
