Leakey's Bookshop

Church St, Inverness IV1 1EY, UK – 01463 239947

Leakey's Bookshop is definitely an experience. I love the atmosphere in here. I would recommend Leakey's as a sightseeing spot and for buying prints or gifts. I wouldn't come here in search of some reading though, the prices are pretty high and most books are more interesting in their material value than their textual content. As an avid reader, I would definitely visit Leakey's again, but not in search of my next favourite book, but rather for that one piece of my gorgeous classics collection that is missing. I'm rating 3 stars because I was disappointed to leave having bought no books during my visit.

Super cool 2 story used bookshop that will make any book lover's eyes widen! Located in downtown Inverness, I make a pilgrimage here every time I'm in town. Though you never know what you'll find, Leakey's is a great place to find a wide variety of used books at a good price.

CLC Bookshops, Inverness

23 Castle St, Inverness IV2 3EP, UK – 01463 238876

A decent resource but books are laid out confusingly. Also prominently features books by some big names with questionable theological positions.

Waterstones

69, Eastgate Shopping Centre, Inverness IV2 3PR, UK – 01463 233500

Decent sized branch of bookstore chain, located inside the Eastgate Shopping Centre. Range is pretty OK although can be frustrating if you are looking for something a bit more obscure. Staff are friendly, helpful and enthusiastic.
