Festive Picks from the Bookshop
Our independent bookshop, located in the medieval luckenbooths of the John Knox House, is a haven for classic tales for young and old, Scottish folklore, graphic novels and books on Scottish history. We have an eclectic collection, and with no online store, it’s back to shopping the old fashioned way! Our lovely staff is always happy to help with recommendations – just ask!

Come in and enjoy a browse!
Show someone the power of stories with a taster of one of our events, our ever popular Supper with Burns.
A seasonal favourite! Join us for an alternative Burns Supper in the beautiful setting of the Storytelling Court, serving up a delicious 3-course Scottish dinner – with the centre piece Haggis – and a generous helping of Burns’ stories, song and lore. Hosted by storytellers David Campbell and Ruth Kirkpatrick, with clarsach player Katie Harrigan. Also featuring Daniel Allison’s wonderful rendition of Tam O’Shanter!
Book early to avoid disappointment!
