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.

It was quite dirty for a start.I had hot choclate that was very nice.The service was ok over all three stats

Leakey's Bookshop

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

I love visiting this shop when I am in Inverness. Unfortunately there is no longer a coffee shop on the premises. But that means there is even more space for books. I have spent many happy hours there browsing and buying.

Leakey's Bookshop offers a wide selection of biographies, histories, and memoirs. The books are in great condition, and there are many editions that I have not found in the United States. While visiting Scotland, I bought two multi-volume series and had them shipped to the U.S. Charles Leakey carefully wrapped each book in paper and padding. The books arrived quickly and were in the same condition as when I bought them. I highly recommend Leakey's Bookshop.
