UK Independent Bookshop of the Year
Situated in the heart of Aberfeldy, Perthshire, The Watermill is a unique combination of award-winning bookshop, gallery and cafè, on three floors of a converted oatmeal mill.
The Watermill was opened in 2005 by Michael Palin, less than two years after owners Kevin and Jayne Ramage first viewed the derelict but enchanting listed mill building with the idea of creating a place to pursue a passion for books, music, art and coffee.

The bookshop has the largest range of titles in the Scottish highlands. We were awarded UK Independent Bookshop of the Year on the merit of our variety, customer service and events we host to promote reading. In the café you can enjoy fine teas and coffee with something sweet or savoury from our menu whilst you browse the books or ponder a purchase. Our music section stocks CDs and sheet music.
