The Moffat Bookshop

Welcome To The Moffat Bookshop

We are open and doing the usual hours. Please wear your mask and respect social distancing in the shop. Hope to see you soon.

When you open the door of The Moffat Bookshop the teaspoon door-jangler announces your arrival and the mind ponders what treasures lie within. We used to invite people to smell the books but that’s probably not appropriate these days. Best just to read them instead.
