New High Street book shop opens in Fort William

OWNERS of Fort William’s new book shop say they hope it will become the ‘centre for culture’ in the town.

The Highland Book Shop was officially opened in High Street last week by author Alexander MacCall Smith, a British writer and Emeritus Professor of Medical Law at the University of Edinburgh. The High Street shop is the brainchild of owners of the Watermill Bookshop in Aberfeldy, Kevin and Jayne Ramage.

Watermill has previously won UK independent bookshop of the year. The owners have transformed the eyesore building in six weeks. Kevin told the Lochaber Times: ‘It’s been a lot of hard work, but so enjoyable, and the response from local people has been overwhelming.’ Plans for shop, which houses a general selection of Scottish books, history and travel books, will see the upstairs of the building made into an exhibition space.
