Right in the centre of the town, a traditional book shop in an interesting old property. A huge election of books, laid out by subject in a series of rooms. We didn't find any bargains but you may be luckier. Well worth a browe.

Wonderfully atmospheric book browsing space...with very wide range all beautifully ordered. The spaces for browsing and storing are all very original with comfortable reading spaces interspersed...I loved all the hand painted quotes dotted about. Memorable

If you cant find a book you want anywhere else in the world, it will probably be here. I pop in whenever I'm up that way (my parents live just outside of the town) and a word of warning, its pretty hectic when book week is on!

You name it and they have a book on it! Once in leave a trail of breadcrumbs because you could get lost in L-space. I take my car to be serviced in Wigtown and claim that this is expensive because I always end up spending more in this shop!
