Popped in for a browse last week after a visit to the opticians and found some really good gifts and books about the local area. The two young members of staff, Robert and Fiona were really helpful and shared their knowledge of the books I was particularly interested in. Definitely worth a visit if you are stopping in the area.

They have the usual information and maps for not just the area but Scotland in general which are free to take away. There is a good selection of postcards at 45p as well. The staff were not overly helpful, when we asked if there were any gardens that we could walk around with the dog the response we got was... More

The ladies here are great!!! They helped us at 455pm and recommended a super guesthouse, calling them up for free. Thank you to them both. Stop by and say hi to them. Note, there is free parking through the stone arch and back near the coop grocery. No need to pay and display.
