The Bookmark is a treasure. There are so few towns now with independent bookshops that it is a rare treat to find a beautifully curated little gem here in the Highlands. We went on with children, nephew and niece and each was treated to a personal recommendation from the owner. I was left to browse unbothered and when I went... More

It may be small but it packs a punch. In the days of big corporate, this is truly what knowing your subject is all about. Our annual October pilgrimage to Nethybridge is not complete without a visit to this remarkable bookshop in Grantown On Spey. Every year our kids chivy us along to Grantown to visit and each time we... More

My friend and I visited The Bookmark with my 5 year old daughter. The shop is a little treasure trove with a plethora of titles of every genre imaginable and a very friendly, knowledgeable owner who was more than happy to offer advice and read aloud little snippets from different books, much to the delight of my enthralled daughter! Definitely... More

Simply the best bookshop in Scotland, small but with it all! I always find what I'm looking for and something unexpected too. And a good animated chat with Marjory sorts out the rest! Haha. You can't go through Grantown without popping in! Braw!

The place is crammed with great reads as well as books of local interest, local history, wildlife, OS maps and a good childrens' section. Of course, no book shop can ever be big enough, but that's a backhanded recommendation. Marjory, the proprietor, is possibly one of the best informed and most widely read booksellers you're ever likely to meet. Be... More

This is a well established book shop on the high street. Extremely helpful every time I have visited. If what I wanted was not in stock then then it was ordered for me. Advice on stocked books for all ages of readers and all tastes.

This is my most favourite book shop to visit. Service and choice are great especially for children. It is amazing how many books can be found in this little shop. I have to find my stop button when choosing books here.

Have visited this shop on several occasions - it is worth travelling to Grantown-on-Spey for the experience. The shop is very small and packed to the rafters with books on all subjects. Something for everyone. The owner is exceptionally knowledgable on most subjects and always keen to help and advise. In the unlikely event that she does not stock the... More

I always use the Bookmark for my book purchases. The lady who owns it is always pleasant, friendly and very helpful. If you need to order a book in, it is usually there the next day or 2 days maximum. A fantastic range of books as well. Highly recommended.
